Fang Talks

Drinks in the barpub are on me tonight!

Yeah, nah.

It seems to be very common that beginners in something are looking for “the right way to start” or want to know whether x is “the best to use”. To answer those questions, “whatever floats your boat” seems reasonable in most cases. Sure, you don’t want to get into art by repainting the Mona Lisa, but you’ll discover that on your own soon enough, and learn through experience.

People worry too much about doing things the right way, when there really isn’t one set in stone way to do things. No one method is always correct, no one tool will serve every purpose. Instead, it’s way better to use a lot of different ones and see how they compare so you can use whatever suits you best for the task at hand.

Don’t fall into the traphole of doing nothing because you don’t know the best way to do so yet. Figure it out!

    I notice this a lot in writing. People say, “Well, I don’t quite know how to start my novel! I read this, and this, and this, but this one book says I should do this while this other book says I should do this.”

    How about you just start writing and work it out as you go?
