I'm a little broken-brained today, on account of an extracurricular stint at the dayjob,1 and I still have edits and a few more edits to do, so by way of content I offer you Jennifer Crusie — Ten Tips for Writers.
This is some sterling publishing-related wisdom. My favourite is point 5 and/or 6: measure your worth as a writer on your work, not on your ability to publish, or your sales. Because writers are in control of the quality of their work. But the ability to publish, or sales once published, is not, in this crazy-subjective and unpredictable industry, directly correlatable to said quality.
And don't miss the comments, while you're over there.
