Trust me on this...
You will write better if you:
1. Don’t publish you own stuff.
2. Write at least a page every day - even if it’s drivel.
3. Read more books.
4. Drink lots of coffee.
5. Turn off your wi-fi.
6. Be wary of praise.
7. Submit only to paying markets.
8. Write your first draft with a pencil.
9. Read your “final” draft aloud.
10. Don’t think a lot about your next book (or your last one).
