Caffeine and Creativity


I’m a caffeine junky…I’ve tried to kick the habit more than once with not much luck. My day usually starts off with a cup or two of coffee, and I’m always within arms reach of a diet coke throughout the rest of the day.

My pounding head reminded me this morning that I had skipped my morning dose. Needless to say, no brilliant ideas were breaking through, which got me thinking about the relationship between caffeine and creativity.

After a quick Google search, I was surprised at the number of articles I found on the subject. I’m not educated enough to say if there is any connection, but there was plenty to be said either way. I don’t plan on giving up my writing juice, but maybe cutting back couldn’t hurt?

What are your thoughts? Do you need a cup of coffee to get your fingers moving?
