writing tip: criticism…

open minded

A writer must expect other people to criticize their work and open-mindedly consider all worthwhile suggestions. Martial arts master Bruce Lee advised anyone attempting to master a difficult enterprise to learn from other people but also liberally experiment and judiciously draw from our own well of intelligence and talent.

‘Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.’

Advice: Dead Toad Scrolls, Kilroy Oldster

Inky: This one has a prime spot on my bulletin board.
