In the final words of his University of the Arts commencement speech, living icon Neil Gaiman implored his graduating audience to "go and make interesting mistakes, make amazing mistakes, make glorious and fantastic mistakes. Break rules. Leave the world more interesting for your being here. Make good art." He validated that message with a refreshing confession: "When I got out into the world I wrote, and I became a better writer the more I wrote, and I wrote some more, and nobody ever seemed to mind that I was making it up as I went along." Gaiman's inspiring talk deserves to be read by his legions of fans, but it also deserves perusal by all those nervous graduates and near-graduates who worry about the great world beyond.
