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.
