A while ago a discussion topic was posted on one of our writing group Facebook sites. The questions regarded what drink/soda people prefer while writing. It became apparent, very quickly, that Dr. Pepper was the drink of choice, for the majority, while creativity was taking place. I personally love Dr. Pepper. It is my drink of choice for writing, and for getting rid of the tension headaches I sometimes get while writing.
The question was then posted asking if there could possibly be a connection between Dr. Pepper and Writing. Maybe it's the caffeine that puts us into hyper writing mode and our creative juices go crazy. Maybe it's the release of tension in the back of the neck (definitely true in my case) that allows the blood to flow to the brain, calming headaches and allowing us to push on with our writing for several more hours. Or maybe it's just a really good drink and all of us involved in this non-official survey simply enjoy the idea of finding an excuse to drink it. As most of us are heavily involved in our writing, and typically this is the only time during the day we get to ourselves, maybe it's just the perfect time to kick back and enjoy a Dr. Pepper.
Whatever the reason, thank you Dr. Pepper for your unfailing dedication to our writing efforts. We have appreciated the support and loyalty through the hours of missed sleep and heavy concentration in an effort to create our work and see our dreams become realities.
