Goodreads asked J.R. Tompkins:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

J.R. Tompkins I'm still an "aspiring" writer. I think we should all be. Never stop aspiring. Aspire. Perspire. Read. Write. Then read, write, again. Never stop learning. Never stop reading good work. Never stop expressing awe at the amazing world around you, or within you, or whatever it is that you find so magnanimously beautiful that you need to shout a bookful about it.
