Make good art

The Graveyard Book

My first experience with Neil Gaiman was probably 25 years ago reading his Sandman comic book (they call them graphic novels now), which I recommend to everyone.  Since then, he’s written a lot more comics, some books for adults, some books for children that are loved by adults, had some of those books made into movies, and just generally been a prolific and immensely imaginative writer. On top of that he’s been a tireless advocate for free expression in all its forms.  Just an all-around interesting artist and person (plus, he has one of the best reading voices you will ever hear.  Look up the audiobook for The Graveyard Book if you don’t believe me).

This short clip below is from a commencement speech he gave in which he provides advice on how to deal with difficulty in your life.  It is great advice.

The Write Niche

For me, finding a niche has been like trying to choose a favorite among my own children. There are so many things I love to do, but one I'm passionate about and that's writing.
