People will try and tell you how you must act, what you must do and when you must do it to be a successful writer. Advice should always be listened to. But remember what they say about opinions. They are like assholes. Not only does everyone have one, but if they aren’t washed and cleaned properly they tend to reek.
Don’t let anyone tell you you must do this or you must do that. Sure, people will tell you what worked for them. But you are not them. Always remember that. You as an author must find your own way and do what works for you. And you must be willing to change course if the path you are on is not working.
