Goodreads asked Nicolas Dierks:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Nicolas Dierks Actually something that Stephen King said: Write a lot - but also READ a lot. Whenever in doubt about yourself as a writer, read other writers from your field - until you find something so badly written, that you can say to yourself: "O.k. - I can do better that THAT."
