Do Your Own Thing

I like this quote from Kurt Vonnegut:

“Don’t trim your sails to every wind, just go ahead and write and see what happens. Don’t look at the market. Don’t look at the bestseller list to see what’s selling. That wouldn’t help anyway. You have to write what you write, or get out of the business.”

It’s a welcome tonic to all of the advice on various agent blogs that seem to think writing is merely marketing.
