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

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?
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!)
LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!
I need to change in that direction! Thanks duffsmom
very excellent! I'm hungry. I better write!
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!
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.
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
