Top writers are where you want to be. They gain this title because they put in consistent effort in their chosen niche. They have worked hard and found a formula that works. Through their posts, you can analyse their work and learn a great deal about writing. It is important to recognise that when I speak about studying what they do, I do not mean copying their work. I had a writer plagiarise my work six months ago and it was the worse experience. Rather than looking at their content, I mean study their style. Whether you are a writer of blogs, articles, or books the advice is the same. It is an advantage to pick up a leading writer’s work, in your genre and study it.
For the year I have been writing on Medium I have posted five times a week most weeks. Like any writer, I have set myself a gruelling schedule.

It is okay to go rogue sometimes. To ignore all the writing advice and do it your way. There is a song somewhere there. I'm going to admit something shocking now. I hardly ever plan my articles. I have an idea and I write it. Although I always have a working title, it changes as the article grows. There are many occasions that the post changes considerably since the first inception.

When I started blogging it was as a book blogger. The attraction of reading free books, before they were released, was too much for me to resist. Since then I have tried to review books, services and products when I can. In the current climate, it is always helpful to get stuff for free.
