Goodreads asked Patrick Bryson:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Patrick Bryson Buy books, read them, re-read them, share them, argue over them, flirt over them, fall out over them – in short, make them part of your life. Then write. Get in the habit of doing both regularly, so that if you don’t do either one for a while you feel strange, like something is missing. Then do it again, and again.
