Top 5 Things ScFi Writers Do while Wrecking the Future


  We drink Coffee at Blue Bottle in Downtown LA while contemplating Warp Drive, Vampires and what it would be like to live on a boat. Then we go to sprinkles for an off menu Banana Cake and Caramel Cupcake.  Y’know cause writing prose takes it out of you.
