What's the number one rule to writing a best seller?

    many say to stay focus & maintain a stress free life. being able to write at your own free will, without any interuptions.it puts you into a state of mind. peace and comfort. what do you think?

      I think keeping focus and avoiding stress mean jack and squat if your story isn't any good.

      1) Write something a lot of people will want to buy.

      You could have all those things and chances are the result will be self-edifying dribble.

      One thing that all best sellers have in common is the authors wrote. They wrote some more. They wrote a lot. They rewrote. They didn't stop writing until they finished. Then they edited.

      Many want to be great writers, but few actually do the thing that makes them a writer, and that is to write.

    The last thing you want to think about when you're writing is making money from it.  It just makes you write like a wookie.
