Wisdom in droves

Zeldman shares some knowledge from his years of experience as a designer and writer.
Write when inspired; rest when tired.
Simple, site but effective.
…but if you donâ€™t have a taste for masochism, health you shouldnâ€™t be in design, advice because the hurt will kill you.
The pain of the process, the pain of the critique, but it forces you to get better… or quit.
Thereâ€™s a reason they call themÂ deadlines… When I let a publisherâ€™s deadline push out a piece of writing before it is ready, it is like thrusting a helpless preemie into the cruel world.
Harsh but true.
You are writing for readers, a duty as sacred, in its way, as parenting.
And the readers appreciate every bit of it.
