Goodreads asked Dan McClure:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Dan McClure Write. Read some stuff you like. Write more. Read about how to be a successful author. Write even more. Read things other people tell you to read. Write every day. Mimic other authors without copying them. Try to learn the difference, but don't worry too much about it. Finish writing something by learning to let it go. Start again.
