1. Cross all t’s with a brave, tension-releasing flourish.
2. The alphabet comes in handy for making words.
3. When you run out of alphabet, try squiggles.

5. If squiggles make you seasick, resort to cross-hatching.
6. UPPERCASE + BROAD NIB = WIN.
7. Draw only one eye. This simple trick lets you allot precious doodling minutes to more important objects like hair and leaves.
8. Brackets add a whiff of historical importance to any doodle.
9. Doodle subtitles first, as titles are harder to come by.
10. When in need of further relaxation, doodle dragons. (Do not doodle on dragons, as this will produce the opposite effect.)
