V is for Vice

Today is a writing day!

I write every day, even if only a few paragraphs. But today I get an uninterrupted (hopefully!) several hours times to make a dent in my current projects. (which are many.) Praise God for Nanas who love to babysit!! =)

My mom tries to give me one day a week to do this. Everyone wins - I get to write for longer than a naptime, she gets to spend time with her first grandbaby, and Little Miss gets to play somewhere new and enjoy all the fun things at Nana and Papa's house.

And of course, no writing day is complete without a vice - in this case, a Starbucks tall, nonfat, white chocolate mocha, no whip! (gotta remember that diet!) It's Autumn, so the trees are changing, the weather is cooling, and the coffee is brewing!

What is your favorite writing treat? Caffeine? Chocolate? Holiday candy? Do you use treats as motivation to write, or a reward for accomplishing a certain word count?
Spill it here in the comment section! =)

Starbucks, definitely. :-) A Mocha Cappuchino. And maybe some chocolate covered coffee beans...
