The Best Gift For Writers

Inspired by a GalleyCat post about the best gift you can give a writer, author and illustrator Debbie Ridpath Ohi drew a Will Write for Chocolate cartoon (embedded above) illustrating our simple gift idea.

Give the writer in your life some extra time to write: “There are countless ways to give the writer in your life some extra time: let them borrow your office on the weekends; buy them a stay in a nearby bed and breakfast; promise to babysit on a weekday evening; purchase a mountain of gift certificates to your local coffee shop; volunteer to do their household chores for a day; buy them a spot in a weekend retreat; in short, do anything it takes to help your writer find a few consecutive hours of peace and quiet to write. They will never forget that gift.”
