Stuffing everything into an Excel spreadsheet.
Look, spreadsheets are for numbers. That's why they were invented, that's what they're good for. Just because you are able to paste paragraphs and paragraphs of text into a cell doesn't mean you should. It kills keyboard navigation, makes things impossible to print, and makes cutting and pasting a nightmare.
Just stop. Please get over your fear of a blank page and having to think that because you're writing a document your inability to write coherently can be hidden by stuffing things into a grid of cells and colour coding everytihng to the point that it becomes unreadable.
