There are so many how-to

I get many emails on how to sell, market and stand out, I scan them and usually delete. Times have changed so it feels that a writer's passion should be to become a master marketer and approach writing as if selling water by the riverbank. And, what is the best way to sell water by a river bank of publishing that is miles deep in vendors?
I ask my self: Self, would you continue to write if you knew for certain tha you would never sell your book, poems etc.? Would you continue to blog, FTL etc.? Self said: well, if you are just trying to make a sale go find something else to do. Then, I read a quote posted by Brian Tracy:  "I was just pursuing what I enjoyed doing. I mean, I was pursuing my passion." -- Pierre Omidyar, eBay founder and Internet Entrepreneur
I ask myself again: Self, if you didn't write what would you do? Its not that I write 24/7, I think that I live a well rounded life but the idea of not writing filled my gut with uninteresting options so, I decided to continue enjoying the pursuit of my passion.

I will soon publish Virgins
