Writers are a quirky bunch. We love to imagine real-life plot twists and contemplate far-fetched “what ifs.” We plug in devil’s advocates into our story to further challenge our protagonist. We have deep discussions with our characters when they beg to go in a different direction. We study people and have questionable Internet search histories. Most people think our habits are strange, but other writers get us. That, my friend, is confirmation that we are on the right track.
But all those quirks work better together when you have a hot cup of coffee or tea … or even hot cocoa … by your side. As a writer myself, I know that sometimes the only thing that helps me "slay it" is a comforting cup of soothing caffeine.
That's why I started my business (Designed2Glow) that includes designing and selling mugs specifically for writers, to bring a little bit of oomph and inspiration into your writing process.
About D2G Mugs
My ever-growing line of mugs features a range of designs and quotes, all aimed to brighten your day and encourage you to keep going, even when the going gets tough. Some of my favorites include:
One of my most popular designs features the simple phrase "In a world full of roses, be a sunflower" in a sassy, yellow, black, and green design. While this particular mug could apply to almost anyone, I love the way this design encapsulates the essence of what I'm trying to do with my mugs - to give writers a little nudge to keep going and to make a difference using their own voice, even when they feel stuck or discouraged.
All of my mugs are made from high-quality ceramic and are both microwave and dishwasher-safe. They come in a variety of sizes, from standard 11-ounce mugs to larger 15-ounce options. And of course, they make great gifts for the writers in your life - whether it's a friend, family member, or even yourself.
I believe that writing is one of the most important and valuable creative endeavors that exists. And if one of my mugs makes it into your wonderful quirky writing world, giving you a bit of encouragement to keep going, I consider that a job well done.
