Book Review

(Image courtesy of Amazon.com)


Finished this book yesterday...easy reading.  It makes some good points (and reminders) including:

*"Find your voice, shout it from the rooftops, and keep doing it until the people that are looking for you find you" (Dan Harmon quote);

*Share your process (take people behind the scenes of what you produce); 

*Share something small every day (and be choosy about what that is);

*Share you influences (books you read, music you listen to, movies you see, art you look at, what you collect, who you follow on line, etc.) -- it clues people in to who you are and what you do.

*Properly attribute when you post/share anything!

*Teach what you know;

*Share your trade secrets;

*"Part of the act of creating is in discovering your own kind.  They are everywhere.  But don't look for them in the wrong places" (Henry Miller quote);

*Listen; and,

*Always be a learner.
