Finally! The glorious slow season!

It is finally, gloriously slow at work, freeing up hours upon hours of writing time for me. Hooray for no overtime! My bank account shall suffer, but my itch to write will be satisfied.

I am hard at work revising my WIP and being BRAVE and sharing chapters in my writer’s group. This is a BIG DEAL for me and I am equal parts terrified and excited. Two such volatile emotions are colliding and giving me regular headaches so I’m self medicating with dark chocolate. Since I’ve used up all my energy by being social with other writers, I’m just popping in to link to my favorite chocolate bars. I may not be verbose in the way of blogging (and am utterly failing at Twitter, by the by), but chocolate makes everything better, yes?

Try my favorites:

Should you be a dark chocolate newbie, try Ghirardelli Dark & Caramel.

The chocolate isn’t all that dark, and the caramel sweetens it substantially. If you’re reluctant to leave your milk chocolate behind, this is a good place to test the waters. It’s also readily available almost anywhere, even when you live in the sticks. So this often ends up being my go-to chocolate when I don’t want to wait for a shipment.

Green & Blacks is a wonderful dark chocolate that I have to order in. Oh the pitfalls of living in rural farmland.

This “library” of chocolate comes in a fun gift box (to give yourself, of course!) and includes Pure Dark Roasted Almond, Pure Dark Chocolate Raspberry & Hazelnut, Pure Dark Chocolate Sea Salt, and Pure Dark Chocolate. They’re all 70% cocoa. The Sea Salt is my fave. Insert heart-eye emoticon.

Chocolove Almonds Seasalt in Dark Chocolate. All the Chocolove bars are marvelous. Try Chillies and Cherries if you are feeling adventurous!

YUM!
