Shouldn’t you be writing another book or something, you lazy [swear] (via @cacotopos)

I wrote a blog post on my less formal blog, and it had a sweary swear in the title, so I didn’t think it was appropriate to post it here. If you can handle a single swear that starts with ‘f’ and rhymes with ‘fuck’ you should be safe.

Procrastinate in a convincingly writerly way, of course!

It sounds like a joke, but let me share with you how I improve my writing brain without writing: what to do to stay writerly while not writing, followed by what not to do.
