Cryptic Advice

There's a whole lot of advice out there. Some is useful. Some can be detrimental. Some people are grateful for a bit of help, while others get offended at friendly tips. 

I am of the mind that you take what you dig and pass on that which you don't. 

There are many types of advice, but one I see the most I dub Cryptic Advice. 

It's like advice which can seem universal, could be like duh! But not so easy to follow. Or a tip that can suggest so many things it's like the originator is purposefully trying to throw you off.

But are they? 

If you get too specific you run the risk of coming off as a know-it-all. If you give too little you can appear to be holding back. Maybe so the artist can get ahead while keeping the rest back? Maybe sometimes. But come on. There can be so many interpretations and accusations. 

Personally, I feel if someone has achieved something and then shares their experience, it's pretty darn cool. To see how they think, or what led them to their work tha…

Yup, neglect lol. 

Between struggling at work (and it's been very busy there, too) I've been carving (ohhhh spooky word used, get it?) some time to write.

Been so busy.

Don't Settle for Less

Don't settle for less. 

This is something I'm learning each day. If you stand still, become stagnant, there is a risk of becoming complacent. 

Yeah, this has all been said before. I know.  But it's the way one moves forward that matters. Constantly learning. Knowing that you can always learn something new. Understanding what type of story it is being written. There are so many moving parts, so many subtle things that can make the story or break it. 

Do I know it all? No way! I'm learning as I go. 

If you get a rejection, and you know you've learned something new, look that story over. And keep in mind, the story may not be bad, it could just be a situation where they couldn't use that particular subject. Could be one editor wants a certain style, and so on and so forth. 

The most important thing is to keep going. The stories are done, now find them a home. I've even seen some who push so consistently they eventually get their stuff published. Stuff that was reje…
