There really isn’t anything deep about this. Each of us has a favored snack or food that we gravitate toward without thinking about it. They’re that treat we love that brings mental and emotional comfort. A food that we never seem to get tired of.
Most people here are probably expecting me to mention pizza, but the truth is that you can’t have a box of pizza next to you while writing. It’s greasy, makes a mess, and you’re really going to pay for eating the entire thing. That’s not a good author comfort food in my mind. That’s just personal preference.
My favorite snack when writing are Twizzlers. Only problem is that they never last long around me. I’ve devoured a family pack in a day and a half without even realizing it. That was on a weekend too, so it never made it to the writing time. I just like being able to grab a handful of straws, pop the end of one in my mouth, and eat away while my hands are working on something. Yes, I’ve also used a Twizzler as a straw with minor success because it breaks apart in soda. That and I eat it quickly.
So, do you have a comfort food when writing?
