#10 Have fun.
Seriously, if this is something you love, then have fun doing it. Don’t let the business or the need for money swallow the art of writing.
Release the stories that you enjoy. Don’t try to write about the hottest trend like vampires or sorcerers if that isn’t your style. Trust me when I say that it will show to your readers, and you will hate your own work and the act of writing will be painful. Write stories that are true to yourself and your own personal genre, writing style and tempo. Enjoy what you do, and find the corner of the writing world where those readers want to read your unique story.
