I’ve been told by some successful writers that you just have to figure things out for yourself. To quote, one of them even told me that “there is no roadmap”.
But is that REALLY true? I mean, aren’t there things that ALL writers do, and do well, that you have to replicate if you want to be successful?
Observing some of my fellow self-published authors, it seems like doing a Blog Tour is a piece of this roadmap…it seems like getting lots of reviews is another part…it seems like blogging a LOT is another part…
Doesn’t this comprise something of a roadmap?
What do you think? Have you observed any tendencies or directions that all successful writers seem to take? I’d LOVE to hear about them!
