2 i will now tell you everything i know about the process of writing 1,000-word installments of super-lightweight-erotica

are you ready?

(1) first, you write 500 words of plot and subtle social commentary.

(2) second, you reread the 500 words of plot and subtle social commentary.

(3) third, you lard the 500 words of plot and subtle social commentary with 500 words of cliche and description.

et voilĂ ! 1,000 words that make you, as a writer, want to laugh and also kind of puke.
