Great and simple advice from Brit Sarah P. My favourite bit?
1 – Don’t waste time on envy. You’re only in competition with yourself. It’s a long road and just use others’ successes to inspire you or make you raise your game. It’s a happier way to live. I’m a believer in sharing. I’ve got people in with my agent who’ve come away with better deals than me. Am I envious? No. Good on ‘em. I always put people I know who are need of a break in touch with my editors and agents. It might come to something, it might not, but I’m not in competition with them. I’m in competition with me, see? Plus, being nice feels good. Even for a wicked woman like me.
Ze rest, she is here.
Ah, Sarah Pinborough. Be still, my beating heart. (swoons)
