Reader: wow! I'm so curious how you're going to fit everything you've been foreshadowing in here!
Me, frantically flipping through my notes, trying to figure out if I've accidentally foreshadowed something I Shouldn't Have: ummm, yes. Right. Uh, just for fun, would you mind telling me what, that would be... exactly.

This is your friendly, very firm daily reminder that the tags ‘no archive warnings apply’ and ‘creator chose not to use archive warnings’ are NOT the same thing.
‘No archive warnings apply’ means that your fic does not fall under the category of R*pe/non con, Graphic violence, Major character death, or Underage relationships.
‘Creator chose not to use archive warnings’ means that either you do have one of the four official archive warnings that apply to your fic and you didn’t want to spoil it, or you’re not sure whether your fic falls under any of the official warnings or not.
If your fic has underage, r*pe/non con, a major character death, and/or graphic violence, DO NOT TAG AS ‘NO ARCHIVE WARNINGS APPLY.’ Even if you want to avoid spoilers or you added the warnings in the tags, this is still the wrong thing to do. People that get triggered (or just plain and simple don’t want to read content that falls under the warnings) filter by ‘No Archive Warnings Apply’. They want to avoid a situation where they hurt themselves because they consumed certain content. AO3’s phenomenal filtering system helps with this tremendously, so authors, let’s actually use it, please.
Simply put: do not ever tag something that might fall under an archive warning as ‘no archive warnings apply’. ever.
‘But I included trigger warnings in the beginning notes.’ is something you need to to do in addition to properly tagging it. There is no reason for you to want to tag it ‘no archive warnings apply’ when they do apply.
‘But the warning (ex: major character death) will spoil the fic!’ Okay. Here is what you do: you tag it as ‘Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings.’ Next, add ‘read notes for trigger warnings’ to the Additional Tags section. Then, in your end notes, explain the trigger warnings. In your beginning notes, say ‘Read end notes for trigger warnings (contain spoilers).’ AO3 automatically has a link for people to skip the fic and go to the end notes and check. People can choose for themselves if they want to walk in blindly or have the warning first. They can exit if they see something that bothers them. This avoids spoilers and yet takes the precautions of avoiding triggering your reader.
It’s not that hard. Be courteous.

Me, the writer, putting in a tiny detail that isn't super plot significant but adds depth to the story: I doubt anyone will pick up on this, but that's fine. At least I will know.
Reader: hey, I noticed this thing you did
Me: へ(◎_◎)へ (♡ヮ♡) ( T▽T )

So there’s a reason for this.
It has a lot to do with how your brain processes information and right as you’re falling asleep (or standing in the shower) your mind is calmer and can process things more clearly without the stresses of the day.
I’ve been known to tell my co-author that I’m going to go take a nap and then come back later with a bunch of plotholes/problem places solved.
This is why taking breaks works. It lets your brain have the space it needs to work.

Me: Wow, I cannot believe I finished writing this. The only thing I got left now is to think of the title and the summary for it
