1. Don't put sad music on. Crying delays writing process.
  2. Don't read other people's words. Will lead to dejection at own apparent inability. And again, crying delays writing.
  3. Don't watch inspiring TED Talks/Slam Poetry. Will get snackish, then feel bloated and worthless. Once again, crying.
  4. Don't begin research on ancient Chinese torture methods. Futile to start NGO for cause whose victims are quite well and truly deceased.
  5. Don't watch rom-coms. Self explanatory.
  6. Afterthought: Don't write lists on Writer's Block. Creative juices flowing, but entirely wasted on social media.
