Goodreads asked Robert Louis DeMayo:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Robert Louis DeMayo Live life to the fullest and you'll never have mind blocks. Shoot from the hip when writing first draft, don't get caught up in details. I've had novels where a characters name was XXXX for the first few chapters until I took the time to think about it and give him/her a proper name. Always tell the truth, people can smell lies. Don't get into it for the money. Read a lot.
