Robert A. Heinlein’s 5 Rules For Writers

You must write.
Daily habit.

You must finish what you write.
Blog post = easy to finish. With a template.

You must refrain from rewriting, except to editorial order.
Except in response to audience interest, feedback and marketing influence. In other words, people who want to pay good money for what you have created.
Model: a free taste sells the larger version.
Diagnosis: no interest, no potential.
No endless perfecting of work on spec.

You must put the work on the market.
It’s visible everywhere, every day on the blog.

You must keep the work on the market until it is sold.
It’s visible everywhere, every day on the blog.
