RTW: Just Desserts

Rewarding Song of the Day: "Eat It" by "Weird Al" Yankovic


Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.









This Week's Topic:


How do you reward yourself when you meet your writing goals (small ones and big ones)?



Those of you that follow this blog most likely know the answer to this. When we complete a writing goal--whether it be a first draft, writing 500 words, or revising three chapters--we reward ourselves with the best thing in the world...

FOOD!!!!


After we completed NaNoWriMo we had some Five Guys--check out our post on that, here.



I motivated Pam to finish Project J with the enticing idea of Red Lobster:


















And once we finish this round of revisions and our work for our MFA thesis, we just might indulge in something like this:







There ya have it, for us it's all in the food ( Okay, so our title is a little misleading. We don't discriminate, therefore we reward ourselves with not just desserts- but any food). How do you reward yourself?

Mmmm, cheddar biscuits. I have zero self-control when it comes to cheesy, delicious carbs. Food can definitely be a great motivator!

Oh goodness, I could so go for Five Guys right now. I've actually been craving it all week, so this is just another reason I need one ASAP.

Sophia Richardson said...

Okay I don't even like peanuts/peanut butter that much but I salivated a little over that cake. That is a good looking piece of cake right there.
