Too many people are “shipping” before they’ve improved 85%. I agree with a lot of what you’ve said, but not this part. The “get out there” mentality only works if you’re committed to something, and you’re constantly trying to make it good before you sell. To simply be “out there” with anything, expecting instant popularity is crazy. I call it the “American Idol Complex” and it affects so many people today. Stop this “haste and hurry.” It produces nothing but junk. Same as multi-tasking. Someone said women can multi-task but not men. Guess what? Just as many woman gethit by cars while texting as men.

I did a poor imitation of Don Draper for 40 years before writing my first novel. I'm currently in the final stages of a children's book. Lucky me.
