How to be a contemporary writer

We found this list, by writer and critic Roxane Gay, so compelling that we wanted to call your attention to it here: How to be a contemporary writer

We liked #19 a lot– “Participate in the literary community in the ways you are comfortable participating. What matters is that you contribute.”

Being us, we would have probably added #26: “Take a class this fall and meet other writers in the community.”

What do you guys think of this list? Agree? Disagree? Have an addendum?
