Day 20: Query or Pitch Advice
Whether you're querying an agent or pitching a magazine editor, understand that there is a craft to short form promotion.

Day 21: Sources of Advice

Day 22: Synopsis Advice
It's easy to get too bogged down in details. The best advice I've heard is to imagine describing a book or movie to a smart 8 or 10 year old kid. You'll give enough info so that they understand the story, without getting lost in subplots and side characters.

The day job question is so individual. (Cash flow, insurance needs, whether you have dependents or a partner, etc.)
One piece of advice: Don't think of it as quitting your old job, think of it as getting a new one. Full-time is great, but it's still work.

Day 25: Favorite Life Advice
Find the Fun! Whatever you're doing, find the element of weirdness or humor or surreal strangeness that makes you happy.
