Writing is probably one of the most creative jobs to have, but sometimes it is hard to get inspired or to get out of writer's block. Wendy MacNaughton is a writer herself and knows it's good to keep a snack around to keep the creative juices flowing, so she wanted to show people what famous writers ate or drank to remain creative.

She illustrated each writer's favorite snack in this infographic for the New York Times. Looking at all of the preferred food choices of the writers, it's clear that their choices are just as creative as their writing.

Truman Capote, for example, had a variety of drinks that kept him going, starting at 11 a.m. with a cup of coffee and ending at ending at 4 p.m. with a martini. One of the more bizarre choices was Walt Whitman's breakfast of oysters and meat. Stats for Famous Scribblers' Snacks Trending: Older & Mild
