What NOT to do when writing fiction

Don't pause to listen to a recording of your own voice.
You know that weird thing where your voice sounds completely different to you recorded than it does through your own ears, even though everyone tells you, "yeah that's what you sound like" (and you wonder how they can stand to be around you when you talk)? Well I just got a digital copy of a video from a 1999 New Year's Eve party, so of course, I watched it. It's about 12 minutes long and I think I'm talking either to the camera or in the background for a good 10 minutes of it. And now I can't get my own voice out of my head. When I tried to start writing again, I couldn't hear character voices anymore, I heard my recorded voice from 1999. It's very annoying having characters sound like recorded me. That simply doesn't work. On the upside, my hair looked really good.
