Okay, this is silly, but we all need to let things out of our systems sometimes. This is how not to write. Add to the list…
- Never open the file.
- If you do open the file, stare at the blank document and watch the blinky thing blink endlessly… without typing anything.
- Type and delete “the” several times in a row. Realize you need a snack after all that… hard work… because typing “the” several times in a row is exhausting.
- Forget about writing by “researching.” Bonus points if that “research” is done on TVTropes.com (It’s a trap!)
