That’s the MOST IMPORTANT RULE OF WRITING – WRITERS WRITE.
Pay: Little or nothing at the beginning.

and must follow/ignore them.
The person must never say the words ONLY or JUST, as in “I’m only a beginning writer.” or “I’m just starting.” Believe you are a writer and you will become one. We want the person who thinks success comes, not from New York or Hollywood or Toronto, but from one’s own heart.
