1. Don’t listen to anything anyone ever has to say.
2. Now because you read 1. most people would should stop reading, but since you are obviously a glutton for punishment, I will continue…
3. Everything you had ever learned, forget it. It will only hinder you when you write.
4. Now, that you know nothing, and everything that every asshole had ever told you was the way, the truth, and the profit, you can be yourself and just write what the hell that you want to write.
5. Being extremely hypocritical, I hope that you take this advice and do everything I have taught you.
