Goodreads asked J.S. Matthews:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

J.S. Matthews Write. It is as simple as that. Just write. It doesn't matter if it is bad, good, or somewhere in between. Get your thoughts out onto a page and do not worry about the quality. If you have a story or an idea in mind: write it down! Keep track of everything you write and watch as you grow. The only way to become a better writer is to do it.
