If you’re not writing or reading or reading about writing or writing about reading you should be watching a documentary about writing. If you’re not writing or reading or reading about writing or writing about reading or watching a documentary about writing you should be reading about a documentary that is about writing that you will some day watch.

A man. He is staring blankly.

Well I hope that clears things up about what to do if you’re not writing…bit for the past 5 minutes you’ve been reading about what to do when not writing so get out of here, get back to writing something…go on…now, seriously…go and write…stop looking.

Go on…

GO ON!

Go on.
