How to write things

Part 1: the completely random poetry thing.

  1. Stare at something random.
  2. Be inspired by something random.
  3. Write a thing about something random.
  4. DONE.

Part 2: the long thing.

Method 1:

  1. make ToC.
  2. Stare at ToC.
  3. Write scenes at random in ToC.
  4. Realize that the ending was used by Neil Gaiman and abandon ToC.
  5. Repeat.

At any point in this cycle you may revert to method 2:

  1. write random scene.
  2. scratch head.
  3. TEA.
  4. Have flash of inspiration.
  5. look back on scene a week later and discard.
  6. repeat.

At any point in this cycle you may revert to method 1.

How to end thing:

  1. 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.
  2. Still not have a finished thing.
  3. Sleep.
  4. Wait for a break and spend it mostly scrolling endlessly through Twitter.
  5. Sleep more.
  6. TEA.
  7. 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.
