It’s common for new writers to care about their statistics very much. They check their stats multiple times a day, keeping them aware of every new view they get. It can be addicting to watch your progress, but checking your stats often drags you down as a writer. It keeps you strung out on the stats page instead of relaxed, enjoying life, and writing wonderful stories.
I have to disagree.
I am newish and I obsess with stats but I still get to write half decent stories and read people's materials too.
And it has worked brilliantly for me.
