Twelve Days of Editing: Day 6 - A Grain of Salt

During the first twelve days of December I'll be posting twelve ways to self-edit. 
Today's Tip: A Grain of Salt

Mention that you're a writer and everyone will ask you if they can have a copy of your book for free and give out more writing advice than you can shake a stick at. Some contradict one another. Some are completely absurd. But you know what? Not all advice will apply to you. Feel free to pick and choose what advice to follow and don't be ashamed that something that worked for someone else didn't work for you. Make up your own rules as you go along and change them up if you need to. This is your journey, only you can take it.
