Chapter-Writing Survival Kit: Chapter One Edition

  1. Coffee - with caffeine, not from instant crystals.  Preferably fresh Tim Hortons (what I am drinking right now)
  2. Tea, preferably chai
  3. Hot chocolate
  4. Real chocolate
  5. Laptop + narrow gauge lined paper
  6. Black Bic pens + red and blue gel pens
  7. Sympathetic partner for back rubs and for keeping ethernet cable away from me
  8. Healthy snacks: fruit and yogurt
  9. Mind-clearing walks
  10. iPod loaded with music to distract me from the agony of the writing process


  1. That looks like an excellent survival kit, hehe. We have a lot of the same tastes as well, just minus the coffee. Give me double-tea instead of coffee :D

  2. Fair enough. I made it through my undergraduate degree and half my master's without coffee, but I really need it now in the mornings.
