... plan out your dream cast of who will play the roles once your book is adapted for a Netflix series. Before you've even jotted down the first sentence
... create a playlist to accompany the book midway through Chapter One
... spend your writing time adding images to your Pinterest mood board. Your main character would find that meme hilarious
... switch off and daydream about your characters. Just smile and nod along and your family probably won't even notice you're in another world
... gaze at gorgeous book covers and wonder what your cover will look like
... buy all the stationery: pretty notebooks, a rainbow of pens and highlighters, stacks of post-it notes and revision cards, matching stapler and hole-punch, beautiful washi tape...
... drink all the tea
... and eat all the snacks. Writing fuel. Very important
... buy candles to set the mood: gingerbread and cinnamon for festive feels, freshly cut grass for a summer rom com, blood orange for a murder mystery?
... write a really shitty first draft. Seriously. Just get those words down. You can't edit a blank page
