NEW YORK, NY — June 14 — When you’re an author, you get super-duper hungry.
Some of us are perpetually hungry, but that’s another story.
Writing requires a lot of energy. To do it well . . . well, you gotta eat!
So here’s How to Eat Like an Author:
1. Call another author who’s been working really hard and also needs to eat.
Like Dan Yaccarino.
2. Make plans.
3. Change plans.
4. Work on your books.
5. Visit schools.
7. Who’s that author again?
If Dan and I had an eating contest to see who could out-eat the other, who do you think would win?
And some of us like to talk, talk, talk.
10. So unplug, like Doug!
11. Don’t check your email.
12. Don’t look at your cellphone (except to take pictures).
15. Order Second Breakfast!
You will finish at the same time.
16. Wear a vintage sweater. Or vintage glasses (see Dan’s).
When you eat like an author, and you look like an author, and they’ve already given you so many free coffee refills that both your legs are now filled with coffee, they’re not also gonna put your mug on the wall. Not unless you try to run out without paying the bill.
17. Pay the bill. (At Eisenberg’s the prices are from the past too.)
Thanks, Dan, for taking me to Eisenberg’s!
