How do I write? · 11:06pm

1. I open my text editor of choice.

2. I stare at the blank page until I get the idea for a sentence.

3. I write the sentence out.

a. If the story flows, this can lead to more sentences following.

b. If the story does not flow, I sit and stare some more. Repeat 2.

4. On the side I try to catch the most obvious grammar- and spelling-mistakes and fix them.

5. I keep writing until it's the next day or I am interrupted. Insomnia "helps" with that as I can have writing sprees of 20h or more.

6. When I pick up the story again, I go back to 2.

7. Unless I set myself a limit for how long each chapter can take, I keep writing in the same file until I get to a definite break in the story (lead character falling asleep, transition to a new area, etc) and copypaste that whole chapter into a new file. I keep writing in the main file and only copypaste to new files for the proofreaders I don't have. (Any takers?)

And I just keep doing the above until the story appears to be finished.
