  2. Sit at your desk, with your computer open
  3. Free yourself from distraction
  4. Look for inspiration (a.k.a. browsing YouTube endlessly)
  5. Take a break, have lunch
  6. Wash the dishes
  7. Fight with your significant other over disposing the garbage bag
  8. Make them apologize to you
  9. Sulk when they refuse to
  10. Open thesaurus and randomly pick an uncommon, sophisticated word. Write it down
  11. Type a few more words
  12. Oh wait, it’s 8 pm already
  13. Shut down the laptop
  14. Repeat the same thing tomorrow
