Harry, try flexing your mind a little on that one. You can do it.
I’ll add you to the “Clueless neo-pro blog post of the day” website asap.
Matt, those aren’t what-does-he-mean question marks. Those are he’s-kidding-right question marks.
Here’s a tip for you: Buy books you’re interested in, and expect everyone else to do the same. Accept that some of your friends won’t buy and read your work; shrug it off. If you try to enlist your friends and readers into being cheerleaders for your career, you’re being a tool.
Harry, here’s a tip for YOU: you’ve got to stop treating me like I’m an idiot. It only makes you look like an idiot.
My friends are the best possible cheerleaders available. But only if they really believe in me and my work.
over and out
Don’t blame me for the impression you’re making. You’re the one who said: “Make em change it to 5 or delete!”
It’s nice that your friends are cheerleaders. It’s even nicer if they don’t have to be guilted into it.
