Tips and inspiration for the indie author’s journey to publication.

I’m a big fan of comedian and uber-podcaster Joe Rogan. He’s a guy with eclectic interests and an incisive mind. He shared some advice I think everyone could benefit from as we work on keeping our resolutions for 2013. (That’s right! I’m still talking about those promises we made to ourselves New Year’s Eve! Don’t quit!)

Whatever your roadblock in life, he suggests you imagine yourself as the hero or heroine of a movie. Your life is that movie. Whatever you do, a film crew is following you around and capturing each moment as you go about being that brave, smart, energetic, get-things-done protagonist. Protagonists have plots and plans and they act on them to go from zero to hero, loser to Nobel prizewinner. See yourself as if through that lens and you’ll soon find out how that changes your life.

Pop quiz, hotshot! What do you do? What do you do?

Go to AllThatChazz.com for Part II and to see what I’m doing with my movie right now.

What’s the best writing advice you’ve received?

A couple of days ago I posted a piece on this blog about advice writers should not give or pay attention to. It was a clever, well-argued piece. However, people being who they are, some people really do want advice and need encouragement. Some of those people shouldn’t be encouraged and certainly won’t take good advice. So what can we say?

I’m putting this out to blog readers:

What’s the best writing advice you ever got that you acted upon?

I’m on the edge of my seat, anxious to read your comments.
