Have Good Content and You Will Succeed

This piece of advice was given out, by none other than Tucker Max who’s book “I Hope They Serve Beer in Hellir?t=alansdefauweb 20&l=ur2&o=15“, a New York Times best seller came from his on line ramblings.

“The most important thing is having good content,” Max said, during a panel session here. “All these people write to me and say, ‘I have great content’ but it’s dog sh*t (sic).”

The article this is connected to is quite funny, with the author berating bloggers who think all they have to do is show up and they will make a fortune. I agree that there is a lot of work to be done, but his drunken, womanizing (and somewhat illegal) ramblings while most assuredly an extension of the truth (if not interesting fiction) are not the highest of literary value either. Maybe he views himself as Gen-X’s Hunter S. Thompsonir?t=alansdefauweb 20&l=ur2&o=15, but somehow I thinkhe lacks the credibility and believability.

So, work hard, publish your work, and then have your literary agent sleep with someone at the New York Times, at least this seems to be Tucker’s advice.
