If you want to be a writer nowadays, you must change your approach to the craft.
Writing is not merely a craft, it’s a business.
Some time ago it was possible for some people to write a book, send it to publishers, get published and then repeat.
These days are gone, even if you’re traditionally published.
Now, the game looks like this:
You write a book, you write a blog, you market, you advertise, you repeat.
If you don‘t like the game, you can’t change the rules, you can only leave.
