Chocolate as an essential writing tool

I have not read a single book on the craft of writing which has mentioned the benefits of chocolate as a tool essential for writing and writers except one who mentioned it in an interview and only then in passing.

I think there is a niche market there just waiting to be exploited.

Some working titles for books about chocolate and writing:

  • How chocolate can improve your writing (a book for beginners)
  • The age of chocolate (for historical fiction writers)
  • Hand over the chocolate and no-one will get hurt (for crime writers)
  • Zen and the art of eating chocolate while writing your novel (for novelist bikies)
  • The¬† elements of chocolate and your writing style (to help with your grammar)
  • Fiction and the art of choosing chocolate (for fiction writers)
  • Chocolate and inspiration (for religious writers)
  • Dark chocolate (for horror/gothic writers)
  • Choc Wars (for SF writers)
  • Star Choc (for SF television¬† series writers)
  • N.C.I.S. Down Under (N.C.I.S. = No Chocolate Is Safe) (a manual for writers of the proposed television¬† series)
  • Chocbusters (for those writers about debunking the myths about chocolate)

If you have any other suggestions please leave them in the comments section.

    It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of chocolate.

    Classical line, Ken – love it. Sounds a tad familiar – but I can’t put my finger on it right now. I guess I’ll just have to swallow my Pride and admit my Prejudice.

  3. Dark chocolate is my favorite kind of chocolate. Chocolates have some natural antioxidants too.~*~

    Hi there Peyton,

    Thanks for visiting my site and for leaving a comment.

    I love dark chocolate too – but need to be very moderate in my consumption of it due to type 2 diabetes.

    Diabetes is a curse. Slowly I am learning to live with it.
