How To Write A Book

First, find a comfy nook

Sit down with the laptop

Switch it on and get ready to type

But first go get some tea

And your favourite comfy hoodie

Sit back down

Now you’re comfortable and warm

But did you leave the oven on?

Go check the oven

And fix yourself some snacks while you’re at it

Play with the cat for a few hours

Make your dinner

Maybe some more tea

Switch off the laptop and head to bed

Tomorrow you’ll definitely write that book


Wait… did you think this would be actual advice on how to write a book?? Do you not know me at all? Wowwww…

  1. Sounds about right, only maybe more for me it would be play with the dog x 6. He loves to play, he’s a cheeky little guy but when you engage him you can see him go through this kind of “ah heck, I didn’t think I’d get this far” haha.

    I have thought about writing a book before but it’s just never really interested me. Books often sound like a lot of work for something that may or may not sell. I prefer to take risks on things that I know are more likely to work haha.

  2. Hahaha. You know it is said some poets write their poems when they were sleeping, for example, Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Writing short stories and short essays is much easier than writing a big book. And it is all in our mind. I guess finding what really makes one tickle is really important and the book has to exist in our mind first before it shows up in the digital form. LOL.

    1. Oh wow that’s so interesting. True shorter things are significantly easier to write. I think everything exists in my mind but I can’t seem to get it down on paper lol.

  3.     I’m glad to know that tomorrow I’ll definitely write that book. Thanks for the encouragement. But I think I’ll need coffee with my snacks. And now I’ll have to look up that expression I used to know “every nook and cranny”.
        I’ve always liked plan A procrastination and hope, knowing that it’s going to be a great book, because it was in a dream and it felt like the characters in the dream liked it, except that the dream script writer is in my brain somewhere and though it seems like a separate person, it still belongs to me but plays hide-and-go-seek like a child during the day.
        Plan B, the outline outlier. Nook-type tea is a soothing outline for a poem tome to be owned or not to be owned. A few stacks of paper can be pushed aside gracefully for the snacks because potato chips are greasy and you wouldn’t want to get grease on your papers.
        Plan C, rhymes. The archives have poems that rhyme with “C”. Indeed.
        “How to write a poem…” I used to know this. I’ve forgotten. Remind me.
        Cat? Wait, wasn’t that a play — “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” (Tennessee Williams)
        I’d add to these instructions to get the cat off the roof, and the buns out of the oven.

  4. Lol like the “Procrastination” episode of Spongebob. Me all day. I SHOULD be writing or exercising for an impending white water rafting trip. Instead I’m cleaning (and reading your post 🤣). I only clean when it’s the lesser of multiple, greater procrastinate-able tasks 😝

  5. I’m currently actually working on a book right now and I saw this and was like “oh this will be so helpful!” Not really, but it’s something better! It’s really funny!
