I had class last night. While I am paying stupid amounts of money to get this degree I will pass on the juicier bits to you for free! Wahoo!

Interesting Tidbit: DIY
With everything that you read about self publishing being the last nail in the coffin of your writing career, I was floored to hear my 5 Professors saying that they all heartily endorsed Do It Yourself. You should create your own journal or magazine, publish it yourself, publish your own books. Don’t seek validation from publishing houses, they have their place, but it might not always be right for what you are doing. You will never learn as much just writing as you will by editing your own little publication or running a playhouse.
