Definitely worth a read - and absolutely applies to freelance mapmaking too:

That last bit is probably the easiest...draw awesome stuff and put it on the net.

This is interesting.
"Don't trash-talk yourself" is good advice. It's something I tend to do >_<

It probably applies to everything you want to do.

Great link Torstan, thanks for sharing it.

"Don't limit your influences"...I can't tell you how many times I get inspired by doing something I wasn't planning and then I can't wait to grab my sketchbook or my computer.
I was doing my day job and walked past some moss growing in the gravel and had to take a picture because it was just so cool. I don't know how yet but I just know I'm going to use it for something.....unfortunately, I don't have a data plan on my phone so I don't know how to get the shot into my PC.
