Goodreads asked Kelvin L. Reed:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Kelvin L. Reed My first bit of advise is to turn off the TV, put down the mobile phone, and get your fingers moving on that keyboard! I meet so many people who claim they want to write but when I see them weeks, months or years later they're still making that same empty claim. My second bit of advise for aspiring writers is to work on your craft. Take classes, join a writer's group, purchase books and magazines on writing. Finally, READ, READ, READ! If you're going to be a better writer you have to READ.
