Silly Writing Rules

I'm a bit of a fangirl for Supernatural and Doctor Who. I dreamed up some silly 'rules' for keeping me writing a while back and I thought I'd share since tomorrow is the premier of the new season of Doctor Who. 

Rule 1:Find a coffee shop and drink it.
Rule 2: Do not salt and burn the bones of the story. It may haunt you, but resist the urge.
Rule 3: Absolutely no deleting. You are not a cyberman!
Rule 4: Embrace the mess and stop worrying about strict progression from cause to effect. It’s okay if from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint that it’s more like a big ball of wibbely-wobbely… timey-whimey…stuff.
Rule 5: Basically…. Write! Don’t stop moving and don’t blink.

If you understand these references, then congrats! You may be part of the Supernatural and Doctor Who fandoms.
