….Authors, above all, there WILL be cake!… and p’raps Tunnocks Caramel Wafers if yeez are lucky…


…in gazillions of virtual candle-lit garrets across the planet, fellow quill-scrapers toil constantly to produce their wee masterpieces… that toil is generally attended by varying dollops of blood, sweat and tears… surrender of a writer’s time to the taskmaster that is their respective WURK-in-Progress means subjugation of play time, family time, friendships,and relationships with the outside WURLD (whatever that may be)… in the olden days, scribblers like Billy Shakespeare and Chuck Dickens sustained themselves in their self-imposed incarceration in individualistic fashion… some turned to Novelist-Navel-Gazing… others to contemplation of the Scribblers-Meaning-Of-Life… further diversion included conversing with invisible ’friends’ (tell me of any author who hasn’t indulged that particular pastime)… burning incense to the Literary Gods… all meritorious in their own way, so long as the tome got finished… these days, this ol’ Jurassic tends to the more practical resolution of such solo exile… the secret is an open one… Authors, above all, there WILL be cake!… and p’raps Tunnocks Caramel Wafers if yeez are lucky


…I note the predilections of others amongst yeez who immerse yerselves in cheerful chunks of charming chocolate… or cheap chalices of cheeky champagne… often, wine weaves wondrous wit and wisdom… aaaacoffeefor some, coffee carves creative consciousness and crafted composition… whatever, it may be, Mabel… chacun a son gateau ou son boisson de choix… my own weakness swerves toward the aforementioned Tunnocks Caramel Wafers… as spinach was to Popeye the Sailor Man… as ambrosia was to the Greek Gods… so the treasured chocolate-draped biscuit from Bonnie Scotland is to my need for nourishment under literary fire… I’m sure each of yeez Lads and Lassies of Blog Land have yer own favourite ‘go-to’ comfort foods… share them with me… p’raps we can organise a Group Thingy around them… The Association of Nibbling Narrators… sounds appetising to me… yeez’ll excuse me now… I’m off to have a wee bite of… of… of… see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!

    I’m rather keen on a Tunnocks Caramel Wafer too, but at afternoon tea time, not while scribbling. Scribbling nourishment for me includes glasses of tap water, raisins and, on occasion, a lightly toasted bagel with cream cheese. Yum.

  7. I think I was a founding member of the Association of Nibbling Narrators! I’ve never had a Tunnocks Caramel Wafer thought – what makes them so special? Got a good chuckle from this post! 🙂

  8. I’ve eaten wafers covered with chocolate, but a different brand. I love coffee and fruit. I can drink regular coffee as long as it’s not too late in the day. 🙂


  9. Nice crisp cold apple slices. Good for gnashing teeth over ideas, yet non-messy for the keyboard. And water.
    When writing, I really lose interest in food…but once the computer is turned off, now that’s a different story…..

  11. I know this doesn’t sound exciting, but I love munching on raw carrots. Add a cup of tea (or iced) or coffee and I’m good to go.
