How do you stop from eating while writing?


So I just went to the refrigerator for the 3rd time this morning. I guess I think that's where the inspiration is kept! Help, how do you stop this insanity

    Cute! So maybe I should think of my computer like my forever-thin friend, Leslie. I NEVER eat what I REALLY want to eat in front of her. I think I'll call my computer Leslie. You just paved a new path for me to follow. (Maybe tomorrow!)

    MT. There IS no room like that (tee hee). I'd have to write in the bathroom! So you think I should more the two bowls 2 cans of diet Coke, my "Lucky, the Left-Pawed Puppy" mug, and the fork and spoon on my desk right now?

    Baygirl, You've got it on the "procrastination" Mick S said that too. Actually Can we call it "waiting for inspiration"? AND restlessness (never thought of that (while trying to think of the right words.) I'll try healthy snacks. Thanks a bunch

    I think that's what author Csikszentmihalyi refers to as "Flow" - Excellent - can't quite get there myself. Cliches in video games sounds FASCINATING. If you have time, leave an example here. (it will be a teaser :)

    good strategy. I count going to the refrig as exercise! No? I like the snack idea at the desk. Wriing during an actual meal - you're a GREAT multi-tasker.

    Thanks Lady_E. I like the reward for later. We forget to do that. I think it can be very motivating. My eating while writing is when I can't get a thought, it's like I'm looking for inspiration somewhere in the kitchen! I should look in my head!
