I found "ready" in sentences preceded by either the verb get or be when it functions as an adjective, not a noun, like the following:

  • She was ready to take the exam.

  • Get ready for what will happen next.

I want to use it but in a different structure as this one:

You wrote that while putting the candy between your teeth ready to eat it.

So, is the position of "ready", in the sentence above, correct?

I think this is correct except for the punctuation. It needs a comma.

You wrote that while putting the candy between your teeth, ready to eat it.

(“putting the candy...” and “ready to eat it” both describe what you were doing/feeling while writing)

Yes the sentence

You wrote that while putting the candy between your teeth ready to eat it.

Sounds perfectly correct to me.
