Part 1: the completely random poetry thing.
- Stare at something random.
- Be inspired by something random.
- Write a thing about something random.
Part 2: the long thing.
- make ToC.
- Stare at ToC.
- Write scenes at random in ToC.
- Realize that the ending was used by Neil Gaiman and abandon ToC.
At any point in this cycle you may revert to method 2:
- write random scene.
- scratch head.
- Have flash of inspiration.
- look back on scene a week later and discard.
At any point in this cycle you may revert to method 1.
How to end thing:
- Stay awake until two o’clock in the morning writing, sleep in, miss first period, and die because there was a test that day and you cut class.
- Still not have a finished thing.
- Wait for a break and spend it mostly scrolling endlessly through Twitter.
- Sleep more.
- Finish thing. Warning: May be bald with a college diploma and master’s degree in calculus.
DISCLAIMER: I did not actually stay awake until two o’clock in the morning writing, sleep in, miss first period, and die because there was a test that day and I cut class (not that it would do much to my grade). Artistic license. *beams*
I feel like I should
be done with On the Other
End soon but I’m not.
