Some days you just need a little nudge...

A simple reminder that you're not alone on this path you've chosen. Maybe you simply need to know that someone else has been there before--behind a different keyboard, holding a different pen.

For Shared Worlds 2013, we have asked some of speculative fiction's finest artists, editors, and writers to write advice on their own hands and send us a picture.

If you enjoy this gallery of advice, please lend Shared Worlds a hand by telling your friends and sharing the link to this page
