DON’T—Talk trash about other writers, either in public or in private. This will only make you seem small and petty. Get back to your own work.
DON’T—Complain about how your work isn’t getting published. No one likes a whiner.
DON’T—Confuse arrogance for strength.
DON’T—Make lists telling other people how to behave. They are smart enough to learn it on their own.
