* Free gift: Bonus advice at the end of this blog, born of many years experience.
1. Spend time writing a blog about procrastination.
This is an excellent way of not writing screenplays because you feel as though you're doing something useful and you can kid yourself that it's just a preliminary writing exercise to get your brain into gear.
2. Write a To-Do List
3. Sharpen your pencils
This is a particularly useful way not to write screenplays if you have lots of pencils. You can pretend to yourself that you might try writing in longhand even though you always use FinalDraft on a computer. It makes you feel eco-friendly.
4. Check e-mails and Facebook page.
5. Read through the very few pages of the screenplay that you have already written
