The Waffle House Might Be A Writer’s 24-Hour Best Friend
I’ve always loved the Waffle House. They remind me of long drives to Florida on the way to visit family, perking up to see that bright beacon of light on a dark highway before sun-up, knowing my early morning hunger would soon be vanquished in a good way.
Their menu is so simple, but employees of this American institution will always tell you they have an element of pride in preparing short-order comfort food, keeping you energized in a way fast-food restaurants can’t pull off.
Maybe it’s the fact that even though their service is speedy as McDonald's or Taco Bell, it’s still a sit-down establishment, harkening memories of meals around the table.
Since I’ve become a professional writer, I’ve grown to love the Waffle House even more.
While it’s true that writers need quiet and solitude to flesh out their work, there is something that is inspiring about all the sounds of a kitchen, the coming and going of random customers who bring hungry kids for something nutritious, and cozy atmosphere here that help us brainstorm new ideas.
Have you pulled an all-nighter studying for an exam? Are you a writer who needs a change of scenery and found diners like the Waffle House an ideal place for increased productivity?
We’d love to hear about it!
