Last weekend was the most productive two days I’ve had in a very long time. I did housework, I did farm chores, and I even finished a book map to start my next round of revisions! So, of course, today I’m rather lackluster. I figure it’s either because it’s a Monday or because I’m out of writing snacks.

I really think my writing productivity is tied to consumption of Diet Coke and Dove dark chocolate squares. And strawberry licorice from Licorice International. And marshmallows.

I can’t be alone in this. What spurs you on to productivity? Snacks? Music? Gold stars? Or is it all in my head…
