5. Asking other writers for feedback without offering to give feedback in return.

6. Always writing in a coffee shop.

7. Making sure every single one of your bios and social media accounts specify you’re an “aspiring writer.”

8. Following every writer possible on every social media platform you can remember your password to.

9. Purchasing the best writing software/apps/gadgets.

10. Always writing about the exact same thing because it’s “comfortable.”

11. Writing about writing but never actually working on your own projects.
