A Bonafide Amateur!

Austin Kleon in his 2014 book Show Your Work quotes C.S. Lewis about being an Amateur.

That is the power of the modern internet. Finding others amateurs to help you on your journey. That is why I started to write. That is why I hope you write on your own blog.

There are far too many amateur’s posing as professionals putting together courses to make a buck, selling you the 9 steps to a successful life.

Rather find a fellow student in your field but who might be a few grades ahead of you and ask to study together.
