13 steps to write a post

6. go to your angsty and adolescent tumblr and scroll through endless pages of quotes, pictures, funny gifs, and creative poems – still find nothing but hate on yourself for not being able to rhyme like these creative folks; I don’t even rhyme, I just whine really fast

7. search the term “writing prompts” on google for the millionth time and find nothing new

8. resume not writing for a few more days

9. get motivated to write by something that genuinely interests and concerns you

10. resist the urge to publish something that sounds forced because if it sounds forced, it generally is

11. write your heart out for long periods of time

12. search through tumblr for a perfect picture to depict the subject of your post

13. publish with satisfaction

writing playlist: (I adore music with heavy bass and minimal voices, but that’s just me)
