Thanks for your honest, no punches held advice. My gut feeling is that many of these gurus are selling snake oil. I started taking a self-publishing course a couple of years ago. I found the thing gimmicky and disenrolled before they soaked me for more money.

I think the lesson from the tortoise and the hare is just as relevant for today. There is merit in the consistent daily return to the writer’s desk. I may never sell a best seller, but I can enjoy and love the process regardless. Thanks again for this timely article. What you said may not be popular but is true.

Writer, philosopher, humorist, observer of life, an all-around lovable guy.
