Over at HTML Giant is the laugh out loud funny "Guide to becoming a better writer." Among the highlights:
- "Your monitor should tilt towards the heavens as you blind angels with your genius."
- "The bigger your monitor is, the more confident you will feel. The same applies to salaries, penises, and publishing credits."
- and my favorite: "You will need a chip on your shoulder. When somebody asks you what you do at a party, you will need to think 'fucking moron,' and reply, [sigh] 'I'm a writer highly published online. I've been nominated for the Million Writers Awards and was interviewed twice.'
If you can't laugh at yourself, don't even think of being a writer.
