Hey, squiders, a question for all of you that have been following along with the writing around life posts:
Would they be better with personal anecdotes?
I’ve been in most, if not all, of the situations described in the book. Most of the tips and methods described are ones that I have used in various situation.
Would it be beneficial to include “Back when I was in college, I would blah blah blah”?
Or is it just extraneous information and the tips/methods themselves are enough?
I can’t decide if showing that I’ve tested the methods out and know they work would be useful to a potential reader.
The other issue is that I’m concerned that they’ll come across as bragging/discouraging. “I wrote 50K in a month while working full time AND working toward a master’s degree in aerospace engineering, so what’s your excuse?”
So, help me out, guys, Yea or Nay?
