I LOVE NEIL GAIMAN. Man, I wish I’d gone to the University of Arts, whatever that is.

It’s always fun to hear writers talk about how they succeeded, especially because it usually doesn’t involve anything about a certain college or a special mentor.
I really enjoyed listening to Neil Gaiman’s commencement speech at Philadelphia’s University of the Arts. He’s refreshingly upbeat and I loved this piece of veiled advice:
“I learned to write by writing. I tended to do anything as long as it felt like an adventure and to stop when it felt like work which meant that life did not feel like work.”
