Matt Haig has a great list of thirty things to tell book snobs, and I think emerging writers as well. Well worth considering.
I particularly like "You are one of 7,000,000,000 people in the world. You can never be above all of them. But you can be happy to belong." But see which ones resonate with you.
From a Lao American writer's perspective, I wonder how one of us might have written a similar list. But then again that falls under a big laundry list of topics I wonder about.
