1.Drivel; don’t clutter up your writing with information or even intelligent thought or opinion. Ideas take up space in the brain of the reader & stop the gentle flow of pointless, pretty words floating in and out of their heads.
2.No that’s it writing drivel is my only advice. It has so many benefits. It leaves the reader nothing to think about & keeps them searching for meaning. Reading is like vacuuming stuff into your head and drivel is like bubbles. It doesn’t matter how many bubbles you suck into your vacuum it doesn’t get any less empty. My reader is (I imagine) constantly believing that if they just read a little more there will be some point to this endless, meaningless pile of verbiage.
It helps if you are erudite and verbose like I am so it is easier to disguise your drivel as, well you know; writing.
Write in tangents, write in circles, write in dodecahedrons; please, please write in dodecahedrons I really want to read in dodecahedrons or rhomboids.
Never let your readers gain enough clarity to lose hope that there may be a small morsel of worth to all the nonsense you’ve written. You will be aided in this by human nature; the more reading they do the more they will avoid the thought “have I been wasting my time”. Just don’t get tired and let slip some drop of enlightenment or content; not when you’ve worked so hard at deluding them into this lull of unquantifiable pulp.
But nothing can go on forever. Eventually, even sucking only bubbles the vacuum’s motor will begin to strain. Now don’t give in to the temptation to attempt an ending. If your conclusion is in any way a reasonable summing up of your piece it will undoubtedly show up the rest of your blog as the meaningless trash it is. Readers might feel cheated, and more importantly they may not come back.
So I recommend a drifting voice of consciousness, the easiest way to do this is honestly, write anything that comes into your mind. You know my style… dust bunny…cup of tea…What? No really it’s a cup of tea. I don’t remember that being put there!
Quickly then, I hope at least my rantings qualify as erudite and entertaining drivel.
