Using object and adverbial pronouns in negative commands (L'Impératif)

Look at these negative imperatives:

Tu ne me le donnes pas -  Ne me le donne pas!You don't give it to me - Don't give it to me!
-> See Conjugate regular verbs in L'Impératif (imperative)

Nous n'en faisons pas. - N'en faisons pas!We're not making any (of it). - Let's not make any (of it)!

Tu ne la lui écris pas. - Ne la lui écris pas!You don't write it to her. - Don't write it to her!

Vous n'y allez pas. - N'y allez pas!You don't go there. - Don't go there!

When you use the negative imperative with object pronouns or adverbial pronouns (y, en), you keep the same order as in the normal negative sentence.
Note that you drop the subject pronoun tu/nous/vous
