The interview will run in the February 2016 edition, and a more detailed answer is there. But my quick advice for aspiring writers is two things: One, ignore all the negative stuff out there about how hard it is to break in. Understand the challenge, for sure, but be confident that you can make it. Without belief in yourself and your writing, the mountain just gets taller. And two, decide never to give up. Some writers make it with their first manuscript on their first try. Others have to bang out multiple stories before they find success. Whichever path you find yourself on, decide never to stop writing. (less)
