I think I’ve discovered the best way to help beat writers block/get past the first sentence anxiety.
Step 1: take the very base plot of whatever you’re writing.
Step 2: open a new document.
Step 3: write the shittiest, most half baked version of whatever you’re writing that you can. Just fuck that shit up in the most colossal way possible. Take a whole paragraph and boil it down to one sentence that ends with “and then yeah lmao”. Take one sentence and turn it into a huge ramble that has nothing to do with anything at all, just go off the wall. Throw everything you know about good writing out the damn window.
