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…

Why do today what you can put off tomorrow?
That’s what I always say… 😂
I didn’t think that you had written a book, Pooja! 😂❤️
That’s cute 🙂
Hahahahahaha!!! Love it!!
How did you know??🤣 I have very good intentions on the events of the day and the wind can blow or the sun will shine and I’m distracted🤦🏽♀️
Haha I’m exactly the same way 😫😂
The procrastination is real! 😂
This is me every day. The only difference is I end up playing with my dog instead cuz I don’t have a cat.
For real 😫 Lol as long as you procrastinate with a pet 😂
Thoroughly enjoyed reading the post! 😀
I have done almost everything mentioned in this wonderful post.
Haha thanks so much!
Lol, not only entertaining but so relatable. 🤭
Haha thanks so much!
Any time. 😋
😂😂😂 how to do anything tbh
The only way to do anything 😂😂😂
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.
Aww he sounds adorable and like a great distraction lol!
Haha that’s fair. Writing a book is most definitely a lot of work.
No more truthful article has ever been written about how to write a book. 🤗❤️🙏
Haha thank you so much 😊☺🥰
Hilarious 😆 you got me! I actually expected it to be advice how to write a book.
Haha nope no advice here 😂😂
omg so funny.. it sounded so relaxing and I was sooooo motivated! hahaha and then after that who’s the time! ha! 😂😂💖💖 love it Pooja!
Hahah thanks so much and no unfortunately you will find no motivation on this blog 🤣🤣
😂😂😂 you are soooo funny.. Yes, I ALWAYS get motivation from you… but this time a laugh which was more needed! 💖🙏🙏🙏xo
Haha glad you got a chuckle! 😂
Totally did 🙏 😂
Tomorrow becomes years later… 🤦. I swear I’ll finish it someday 🙈!
And someday means like a decade later 😂😂
(checks old drafts)… 😅🤦😐 Not ten years, but… How embarrassing 🙈😬
Haha I dread looking through drafts 😫😂
😂 love this!
Very funny! Thanks for making me smile!
Glad it made you smile!
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.
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.
I kept on scrolling waiting for a twist (actual advice) 😂 I do love tea, I’ll continue to sip till I come around to actually write the book😂❤️❤️
Haha same here! Just sitting and sipping tea 😂😂❤
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.
Hahaha love this! 😂😂
Why does this feel like the story of my life whenever I need to get work done?😅😅
Quite relatable and funny. Love this.
Haha thank you 😂😅
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 😝
Haha yesss! I do that too and usually cook or clean to get out of doing something else 😂
This made me laugh 😂 I think about writing a book daily….will I?
The world will have to wait and see…
Lol same here 😂
Ahaha I have always wanted to write a book (one day…) and I am almost 100% that my attempt will go EXACTLY like this! Thanks for the laughs! Hope you are doing well! 😊
Haha thanks and yes this is generally how it goes! 😂😭
How to write a book?
Ans: A BOOK
Haha exactly 😅
Knowing you, at first I doubted. I thought you were sharing someone else’s book. And then I read through and goshhh ohh goshhhh😂😂😂
Haha well at least you know me well enough to know this post wouldn’t be serious 😂😂😂
I loved this post! And to show some love- here’s a little surprise for you!

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!
Haha sorry it wasn’t helpful at all but at least you got a laugh out of it!
It was very much funny😂
Loved your post, it really brighten up my day
