Work with your hands

Using only analog equipment — nothing connected to the internet — practice your craft. Make something.

Make demos, sketches, and drafts

Focus on finishing up a working version of your thing — a demo, a sketch, a draft, or something of that sort. Assume no one else will see it and that what you are making is just for you.
