Nutrition for Writers

I may not be a nutritionist, but I know what works for me! And if it's good for me, then it must be good for everyone else.

What are the two basic food groups?

That's right: coffee and ice cream 

I will, at no cost, give you an exclusive license to use a mixture that I want us to call "The Ara"

This little piece of heaven will give you the sugar and coffee rush you need to konck out at least 2,000 words in one sitting!

If you're going to use my recipe, you need to give me the name recognition. I was told that my brand was important. This is a good place to start. 

Speaking of starts, here we go:


Espresso - Please do not cheap out and use some instant coffee. One ounce please. Anything more, and it might as well be called colored water


Chill the Espresso - In the freezer she goes. For about 20 minutes. Don't let the dang thing freeze. Just make it cold.


Ice Creme - Vanilla ice cream. Once tight scoop. Don't overdo it. You really don't want to have that much ice cream. You want it to be just enough goodness.


Combine - Gently pour the chilled espresso on the vanilla ice cream.


Have At It - Don't share. Don't listen to Barney. When it comes to this, Sharing Is NOT Caring. It's just silly. You don't want to share your awesome, The Ara, with everyone. You can share the recipe, and my blog, but don't share the creation henceforth known as The Ara.

Here's the last part of the deal, if you like it, let me know. If you like it-like it then join my blog, or twitter account. I say a lot of cool stuff! At least, I think so.


  1. Oh yes! Love coffee, love ice cream - one plus one = three in this combo! I know it's decadent but we have a reconditioned restaurant coffee machine in our kitchen - espresso, doubles and cappuccino at the touch of a switch. Can't write without my coffee ....

    Hey, you're not such a Rookie after all.

  2. Thanks Linn, can you imagine the poor quality of writing that we would have to endure if not for coffee??? Since your novel is about to be released, you have the right to be as decadent as you want to be!

    All, check out and read the sample from her soon to be released book.

  3. I love food. This blog post is evil. I burn no calories while writing and just get fatter. to get some coffee and ice cream.
