I Love Food

Reading everyone's Happy Posts have led to me realize that us writers really love food, especially CHEESE! and SUGAR!!!

This of course got me to thinking about my own writer diet, which is very unhealthy, but oh so enjoyable. For example, I eat chocolate ice cream while querying agents. It takes the sting out of rejection and makes the process slightly enjoyable. Edy's Double Churn Chocolate is my fav.

Second example, Nerds always make the day taste sweeter. I totally love crunching on the sugary candy while editing. Writing not so much, as inevitably a few are bound to drop into the keyboard and put a funk in my day. My currently handicapped space bar can attest to that.

And who could forget frosting? I have yet to meet a flavor I did not like.

Thank heavens for gym memberships and willpower. After all, we can't eat too much, right? I mean, we all have to look hot for our book tours and pub photos!

Okay, so what about you? Any favorite foods that I missed out on? Care to share your foodie obsession?

Cheers to you--I'm off to scope out the fridge...

I totally just got over a "Nerds" fetish not too long ago. I saw them at Toys-R-Us and had to give in, then I was hookoed.

As for my normal food cravings: NACHOS!

Any and all kinds of nachos are my weakness. Anytime is a good time for Nachos!

Icing's great, and anything from Goetze.

You are so right...cheese and sugar.....my diet could consist of only those and I'd be happy. Homemade mac and cheese.....or grilled cheese on rye- throw on some carmelized onions......

But I do love a good crunch too....chips and guacamole...or a good homemade salsa (no jar stuff). Or well...anything you can dip a chip into...Buffalo Chicken Wing dip is a weakness and spinach artichoke (hey, there's vegi's, it's all good). But I do get a chocolate craving too....one word: Oreos..........

I love cheese and wine. And chocolate pretzels.

My three-year-old loves Nerds. She eats them one at a time so the box lasts forever!

You nailed it, girl - add in anything bready, and a soda, and I'm good to go! :-)

Red Vines, mexican food, cheesecake,...yeah, pretty much anything with cheese or sugar.

I reward myself with dark chocolate covered cherries for a good days writing. Every once in awhile I love peppermint patties. I think the chocolate rewards are more prominent over the winter. Strange. (Hugs)Indigo

Oh, you guys are making me hungry. Let's see, I'd like some nachos, mac & cheese, add in some pretzels, a glass of wine, add a glass of soda, a slice of cheese cake, and a peppermint pattie and I'll be good to go! Happy eating!!!

Chocolate anyone?

Oh, I love Lemonheads too. Strange but true.
