First two pieces of advice – one from Seth Godin, and the other from Ray Bradbury.
Seth Godin, on how to give a five-minute presentation:
Give a four-minute presentation and take your time.
Ray Bradbury, on writing:
Your intuition knows what to write, so get out of the way.
Go slow or go quick?
Write your words down like Ray Bradbury.
But don’t give the reader everything you could say about the character or the scene.
Like Seth Godin, take your time and give the reader what is essential.
