Current Inspirations for writing

Coffee shops are loaded with people and their stories, two things I love most in life. Monkabeans on Main Street,  Hopkins, MN is a current favorite of mine (see photos below). It is populated by a diverse group of people including but not limited to: high energy high school students from the nearby Main Street School of Performing Arts , ex- marine veterans from the Vietnam War, crafty grandmothers, and best of all, ghosts from Monka’s somewhat steamy past.  I love doing the research for my screenplay (fictional) based on this  delightful establishment and the people who frequent it (also love the great cups of coffee first thing every day).

    Sounds intriguing! I too find coffee shops to be inviting places for writing as well as reading.

    Hi Sharon,
    I had to find something like “Monkabeans” to be inspired again. Most suburban coffee shops, as you know, start with the letter “S” or “C” and though the coffees great, there’s just not the community of a place privatedly owned.
