A List of Writing Things to do Instead of Procrastinating (maybe)

So people apparently really like my lists so here’s another one???


  • Kill your darlings. Either way works.
  • Rewrite the disgusting gnarled draft you gave up on years ago- just for fun
  • sET SOMETHING ON FIRE  ahahahah sorry smaug just took hold of my computer
  • WRITE>>>FANFICTION>>> AND>>> MAYBE>> SEND>> ME> SOME?
  • Read literally every single post by paperfury because she’s your #rollmodel (no I did not spell that wrong)
  • Reread your plotless 300pg draft and pretend it counts as writing
  • Look at tumblr prompts online and pretend you’re actually gonna use them instead of becoming a tumblr prompt hoarder like me
  • Actually write. (oh yeah, this is big brain time)
  • Listen to Queen on full volume and cry (internally, of course) as you attempt to #author
  • Write some background on your characters (giVe tHeM sOmE HEaRtBrEaK)
  • Write a scene you’ve wanted to write foreeevvvveeerrr. Dew it.
  • Go through your draft and lengthen your scenes. You know you want to.
  • Or if you’re one of those people who write TOO MUCH (lucky) maybe take some hedge trimmers and chop away? OR JUST KEEP IT IDRC
  • Listen to yet more Queen while rolling around on your floor, pretending to be a vacuum cleaner and hope the lint accumulated on your sweater forms words. (I promise I don’t do this on a daily basis. it’s every other day)
  • SET SOMETHING ON FIRE Smaug won’t stop, sorryyyy
  • Go back into the deep gross gnarly old drafts of old writing projects and *TRY* to revive them.
  • Finish an outline or something, idk?
  • SET. SOMETHING. ON. FIRE. YES THIS IS DEFINITELY JUST SMAUG IT’S ALL FINE
  • You can write a fun scene in your book with no purpose except to expand character relationships (I do this too much)
  • fill a page with ridiculous descriptions
  • Just write something so you can be proud of yourself and brag about how you wrote something! You don’t have to tell them it was two words!!
  • Just write *something*

    when i read the step where you said to give your characters a back story and heart break, i just sat in my chair evilly thinking over the tragedy of a story i gave to me and my friend’s main protagonist character.
