Don’t Write the Tedious Thing

A dining room table. In the foreground, two composition notebooks and several typewritten pages with notes scribbled across them, alongside a nearly empty glass of water and two mugs filled with hot beverages. Further back on the table, a cat. Beyond that, a trunk with some books on it. In the corner, a rocking chair.
