SearchLink for Editorial
I translated the original script pretty much line-by-line, so the feature set should be identical, but I'm definitely not a Ruby expert, so it's quite possible that I overlooked some details. Let me know if you find any bugs.

structure - Dashes vs. Commas vs. parentheses? - Writers - Stack Exchange
Looking at your three examples, I would say the following:

The first one (hyphens) emphasises that it's his third meal of the day, making it at least as important an idea as the broken table.

The second one (commas) downplays the idea, making the broken table more important, just leaving us with an impression about the eating. This is the most subtle of the three.

In the third one (parentheses), the narrator is speaking directly to the reader and is making an out-of-character remark about Bilbo's eating habits. This is the most blatant of the three.

, Cory Doctorow interview
As a technical matter, I write for 20-30 minutes every day. I do it at 5 a.m. or 6 a.m. in the morning. I write 250 words, about one page. At that rate, I do a little over a novel a year and that's not a bad clip to go at. Novels for me are how I find out what's going on in my own head. And so that's a really useful and indeed critical thing to do when you do as many of these other things as I do.
