    if you have to sit for hours staring at your computer screen or hunched over your typewriter

      searching for words
    don’t do it.


That being said it's hilarious how pretentious this is when he says not to write out of pretentiousness. It falls under the same category of writing as those "Don't Date a Girl Who Travels" bullshit articles. I don't know who Charles Bukowski is, but I don't see why he feels the need to do the same thing brogrammers do on a daily basis.
