I particularly like this bit:

Quality comes mostly from skill and experience – writing one book very slowly will not make you a better writer or it a better book; and neither speed nor quality is the biggest indicator of a book’s performance. Ideally, you should intend to become a better, more confident writer – in which case writing faster is an inevitable result.

I want to watch that movie now!

Just goes to show, have faith :) But caution for any new authors, he was already a famous author when he self-published, he'd already learnt his craft.

I like tip #22.

Thanks for posting, Cage :)

Thanks for bringing it to my attention, Rkcapps!

I like tip #2, which I can use to avoid things like cooking-cleaning-housework-shopping- - - all that stuff that gets in the way of storytelling!
& #4, because I like to both read and write knowing the shape I'm crafting to and from - a bit like a tailor taking measurements, yes?
& #5, as long as it's a subliminal form, not overt (or at least, not so obvious that the dog recognises where it came from).
& & &
Okay, they're all good. Every single one has value ...
