#IWSG - November - To snack or not to snack! That is today's musing.

 

 

It’s time for another group posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group! Time to release our fears to the world – or offer encouragement to those who are feeling neurotic. If you’d like to join us, click on the tab above and sign up. We post the first Wednesday of every month. I encourage everyone to visit at least a dozen new blogs and leave a comment. Your words might be the encouragement someone needs.



The awesome co-hosts for the November 4 posting of the IWSG are Jemi Fraser, Kim Lajevardi, L.G Keltner, Tyrean Martinson, and Rachna Chhabria!

November 4 optional question - Albert Camus once said, “The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.” Flannery O’Conner said, “I write to discover what I know.” Authors across time and distance have had many reasons to write. Why do you write what you write? 

 

I totally stole this blog post from my other blog post on the IWSG site! Sorry for the repetition, but there was no way I was coming up with two topics today!!

It's my turn to post on the main blog and I'm late! I even have my calendar set to send me a reminder and I still managed to screw it up!

But...I'm here now and I'd like to talk about something that's really important to writers...

 Snacks

The future of snacking: Flavorful, functional and full of opportunity |  2019-05-22 | Food Business News

There are a few types of writers.

Those that eat snacks while they write.

Those that don't eat snacks while they write.

Those that eat snacks as a reward system.

Those that eat snacks when they can't write. 

Those that forget to eat all together.


 What type am I? All of the above. Except that last one. I don't think I've ever forgotten to eat. :)

If you're wondering why beverages were left out of this post, its only because beverages are imperative to writers.

So, do you have a writer snack type? What's a favorite snack? Do you need a snack intervention?

  1. Oooo, I'm a snacker. Today, I ate 2 cookies. I like drinking coffee in the am and hot tea in the afternoon when writing. If I'm really into my story, I don't snack, but go for nuts or whatnots during a break.

  5. I am the type to forget to eat. Especially if I get in the groove. Usually, hubby reminding me its dinner time alerts me to the fact i need to eat. LOL
