The message I constantly use in my articles is write your way.

We are all adults here , well hopefully. Read the advice try some, throw some out. Work out what works for you and keep it. What doesn’t work for you, throw it out.

For example, I tried asking for claps when I started. It then felt slightly dirty so I stopped. For some authors this works for others it doesn’t.

Write for you, not for followers.

Great post as always Tom.
