36 Thoughts Writers Have When Preparing to Write

Every writer has their process. This is mine.

God help me.


1.  I’ve got a free writing day! Finally, some time to really hit that keyboard!






2. Oh, the washing up needs doing. Can’t create a masterpiece in a dirty home!





3.  I’ll just get myself a drink in case I get thirsty so I won’t have to break my flow of creativity





4. And maybe a snack





5. You know what it’s about time for lunch, let’s get that out of the way now





6. Darn, I’ve no mayonnaise. Can’t have a sandwich without mayonnaise! I’ll just pop to the shops





7. Might as well do the week’s shopping whilst I’m out. No point making two trips after all





8. Do I need more cereal?





9. I always need more cereal





10. Okay I’m back! Will just unpack the shopping and then let’s get down to business!





11. I’ll just have that sandwich first





12. And I need another drink





13. Look at all these junk emails I keep getting, it’s really about time I unsubscribed to all those pointless newsletters





14. Hahahahahaha that goat screams like a human… wait how did I get on YouTube





15. Write damnit!





16. Christ a blank work document is scary





17. Like a rectangular ghost trapped in the coding of my laptop...

 

18. Hey that’s a good idea… I’ll add that to the ‘Ideas’ document for later





19. Look at all these ideas! I’m clearly a genius author





20. Although I do already have quite a lot of half-started masterpieces on here





21. I’ll just read through them. For inspiration purposes





22. Oh god did I really write that





23. This is terrible





24. Why am I even bothering





25. I should give up and try a different way of expressing my creativity to the world





26. I wonder if I’m secretly a top notch break dancer?





27. OUCH. I am not secretly a top notch break dancer





28. Is that what time it is?! I best get started or it will soon be…





29. I’m hungry again.





30. You know, I work best in the evenings anyway





32. Come on write





33. Write!





34. Wriiiiiiite!





 


35. You know what, my head is clearly not in the right state to create today.





36. I'll try again tomorrow. Netflix!

  1. Just finished a sandwich. Now my coffee--darn, it's cold! Got to reheat it. Maybe I should get dressed... Oh, what the hell!
