    Very true. And especially true these days when nobody’s 100% sure how success even works anymore.

    I always tell people to start with being a storyteller. That’s been an honorable calling for centuries now. Then, within being a storyteller, worry about publishing and marketing and building your brand.

    It’s worth repeating: I LOVE your advice! :)

    (Also, thanks for the kind words!)

    Nicely put. I thik it’s too easy to put emphasis on publication, when what really matters is the writing itself.
