Your loving reminder not to panic, not matter what you see in the headlines.
Seriously, folks, I’ve been in this business for almost 6 years. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen something happen and get passed around as the End of Times. And a BUNCH of people make decisions based on it.
There’s a difference between being nimble and adapting to the situation on the ground and reacting to stories of terribleness that happen to individual authors. Or even several authors.
Deep breaths. Make decisions based on data. Keep risking. Keep trying new things. Rinse. Repeat.
Steady as she goes.
