Goodreads asked Oumar Dieng:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Oumar Dieng If you are an aspiring writer or you are thinking about writing, focus on writing. Set time to do nothing but write. I can't stress this enough! Where most writers fail (or take forever), is that they don't write enough. My advice: write whenever and where ever you can; you can focus on the publishing process when you have a manuscript.
