This week we are talking about snacking a the computer. I don’t. Growing up we were always told not to have food or drinks next to the computer and for the most part that has stuck with me. So when I am writing on a computer I don’t have snacks on hand.
However when I am writing longhand that is a different story. I will keep a little dish with candies and have a pot of tea near as well. The candies vary depending on what I am in the mood for. Sometimes it is hard candy so I am not having as much though there are times I just want chocolate. Usually, I’ll have a piece after writing a chapter. I will sip my tea throughout writing though. There are times when it just feels right to write like this. With my tea pot, the lights dimmed, with my paper and pen. Here lately I have been happier writing this way too.
If I am writing late at night I won’t have anything to snack on. Due to acid reflux I try not to eat after eight at night. Even if I am writing until one in the morning I won’t snack but I will have my tea.
Do you keep food and drink away from your electronic devices?
