How To Start A Paper

(in case I forget… which I inevitably will)


Obtain lined paper and your good pen.

Close your computer.

Look at the book you are going to write about.

Write down everything you love about that book.

Or, if you’re not crazy about it, write down everything you find remotely interesting about it.

Or, if you hate it, write down why you hate it.

Then, write down why.

Write until the page is mostly full.


Then write sentences.

  1. Ha! I love it. What great advice. You should write a note to yourself and stick it somewhere to remind yourself of this post, in case you need to come back to it again!
