Tip: If you want to be a successful writer, you have to be willing to promote your work and yourself. If you don’t, you may get published…but you’ll rarely get anywhere. Figure out what you’re comfortable with and do it. A good rule of thumb is to spend ten percent of your writing time on promo.

Thought: “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” ― Maya Angelou
