There are tons of online resources, some are good and some are bad, but I’ll start with my personal favorite, my blog. As you know, I’m trying to put my finger on the tip of the iceberg, and hopefully that will help others make their own path to success. I’m always learning about things I’d never previously considered, so I feel like I’m pretty good at figuring everything out. Here’s my little list to get you started: 1. Practice a lot. There’s nothing more intimidating than finding out that you’re never meant to be good at something. It just feels awkward. It’s always better to be bad at something and see what happens.
2. Watch TV. Seriously, it can really help to be exposed to a range of genres and genres can give you all sorts of helpful tools to get more creative. I found this video that I think explains them better than I do.
3. Listen to the radio. I’m pretty sure it’s better than sitting through TV anyway, but you can always get some really good local news on-air if you listen to NPR. I think it helps that in the 90s that we had a strong local news presence.

5. Read. If you’re lazy like me, you should really pick up a book to do with your time. I think my favorite novel so far is The Best Way To Be A Woman by Lisa Lutz and I plan to read a bunch of other great reads. It’s really helpful when you’re stuck without reading something to push your way out of bed.
I would strongly consider this an advanced course if you’re only starting on your own but if you’re interested in developing your own sense of what it takes to get amazing you should start now.
What are my mistakes? What are some tools I didn’t use? What have I learned? That sounds really good to me but I was never very good at thinking about the process and how I was doing it. I was always very focused on what I was doing and trying to take my own direction. This is one of those cases. So the questions are:
