A topic for this blog post refused to come to me. I guess my muse went on vacation. Thanks. Anyway, I couldn't think of one subject that I wished to write about so I'm sitting in front of my messy desk, watching the cursor flicker at me, and munching on pretzel sticks. My fuel for thought.
Delicious fuel to get my mind going--The buttery taste so creamy then the explosion of salt. I'm in heaven. While munching on one, it came to me--my snack needs praise for the help it gives me. Everyone has their snack that is comforting and stomach filling. These stick pretzels do that and also help me think . In college, I munched on them during a lecture. Somehow, they kept me focused on the lesson even these years later, I get into the zone when I'm eating them.
Some people use food as a reward. The sundae if finish the revisions are completed. A cheesecake if you write that synopsis. I even read it in one of Kasey Michaels's books where her heroine who was a writer, would line up M & Ms (another of my beloved snacks) then once reaching writing goals would eat them. Sound yummy. We all need something to get through some tasks and every little thing helps as the cliche goes.
What is your favorite? Do you have more than one? Is the food a reward or is it your fuel for thought?
