HOW TO WORDS:
An Essay in list form by taylorpotato.
1) THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN EVER DO IS REALIZE THAT YOU SUCK AT WRITING.
2) After accepting that you are a horrible excuse for an author, and an affront to all literature that has come before you, it’s easier to sit down at a keyboard every day and type without judging yourself too harshly. Most great stories die on the tip of your brain-tongue because your internal critic is being to loud. Ignore that guy. You already know how bad you are. But practice is the ONLY way to get better. Do not be afraid of your ineptitude. Own it. Embrace it. Maybe lick it a little bit. Everybody is horrible until they aren’t.
3) There is no such thing as writer’s block. I will say it again. WRITER’S BLOCK DOES NOT EXIST. YOU MAY NO LONGER USE THAT AS AN EXCUSE. YOU ARE HURTING NOBODY BUT YOURSELF WITH THAT FILTHY LIE. IF YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE WITH A STORY, GET UP AND TAKE A WALK. SHOWER. WATCH SOME CAT VIDEOS. BUT THEN YOU MUST GO BACK TO THAT DREADED WORD DOCUMENT AND POWER THROUGH. DO NOT LET IT BEST YOU. YOU ARE A CHAMPION. YOU CAN DO IT.
