A lot of good advice here. If, as a writer, you can ever get far enough along in your career that it will be relevant to your existence. lol :D Worth reading anyway, though. What I got most out of it and have always believed is "be original" and don't stop working on a project until it's right, no matter how long it takes. With the ease of self-publishing these days, too many writers do neither. And those folks drown all of us who are really trying.
