Our Principles From Horace

Principles From Horace: 

1. Love your work, but don’t be afraid to change it. 
2. If you make a mistake, ask for help genuinely. And move on. 
3. Stay true to yourself; don’t copy ancient techniques. 
4. Keep it short and sweet. Don’t over-embellish. 
5. Do your thing. Your style is unique. 
6. Know your limits. Don’t go beyond them. 
7. Be consistent if you’re original. 
8. Write what you wish to write about. Be whole and natural. 
9. Choose your subject wisely. Write what you know.
