Advice

David Farland had some good advice today:

“…every author takes a different path to success, and so very often we find that one piece of advice isn’t relevant to all writers. R.L. Stine started out writing little adventures for role-playing games. Does that mean that you and everyone else should do the same? I started in the offbeat path of being a prize-writer. Certainly not everyone can or should do that. John Grisham gained experience by writing legal briefs. Wanna give that a try? Most novelists begin quietly building an audience the hard way—by selling one book at a time….So seek out advice from friends, family and professionals, but also use your own good judgment when trying to decide what to do. Always remember that ‘Free advice may be worth less than what you pay for it.'”
