Things I do while writing. Listed from least amount to greatest. One. Looking up what that thingamabob with the thinger on the thingy is called. Two. Finding definitions for words I already know. Three. Scouring a thesaurus so I can replace that one word I use a billion times. Four. Compiling a search history that almost certainly has me flagged by the NSA. Five. Pacing. Six. Swearing. End of pie chart.
I also swear profusely while drawing, gaming, crocheting, knitting, and pretty much anything that involves skill. Fun fact: I almost never swear in public.

One thought on “Things I Do While Writing”

  1. I never swear in public either but at home I’m terrible. So bad in fact that my dear wife has also picked up the habit and would now make a sailor blush. Also I’m very good at pacing.
