Lisa Yee’s Chocolate Feast

Posted by at 8:02 am in Authors, Writing Prompt | Permalink

Lisa_yee Urggg!!! This morning I realized that I didn’t have everything I needed to write. Oh sure, I had my computer, and my notes, and my Peep (she’s the yellow plush bunny who’s my muse), but I was out of chocolate!!! So that meant everything had to stop until I could stock up.

Now, I know it may sound weird that an author needs chocolate to write, but it’s true! At least it is for me. Why? Because it fuels my ideas and creativity. Seriously. There's something in chocolate that makes people feel good. I know this is true. I looked it up. It's scientific.

2Okay, okay, okay . . . I also have to have chocolate because I love it. But it makes sense, doesn’t it. That if you’re happy (like after eating chocolate), you feel better . . . and if you feel better, then you are more creative . . . and if you are more creative, you can write a better book!

So it was off to the store to get my essential writing supplies. See’s Candies, my fave place for chocolates, was too far away, so I went to the grocery store. Hmmm . . . Milky Way? Love that caramel. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup? Totally yummy. In the end, I picked Hershey’s Kisses. Can’t go wrong with those! 

Okay, then. It’s back to working on my book . . . right after I eat my chocolate!

What about all you  writers out there? What is your favorite thing to snack on while you're writing? Let me know in the Comments!

    I suck on something when I write. A sucking candy or a watermelon flavored lolypop! I I don’t have any left, chocolate suits me just fine!!! :-)

    Well, I normally just pour some marinara sauce into a bowl, or maybe make tortilla-noodles, or pasta. Whatever works.
    The Peep sounds interesting. I don’t have a personified Muse. My writing partner-in-crime and I call them “plot bunnies”, but song ideas are “plot jackolopes”, random ideas are “plot koalas”, and so on. Plot kangaroos are very rare.
