This is an interesting perspective on the careers of Bestselling authors who fall victim to One-Hit-Wonder syndrome. I wonder if the pressure to recreate that first success, either from their publishers or in their own heads, contributes to creative stagnation. Independent authors have an advantage here, I think, in that we have the freedom to keep trying until we find our groove, collecting readers along the way. The steadily prolific writers are the ones I look up to more so than the chart toppers. What do you think?
