Goodreads asked Joseph J. Luciani:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Joseph J. Luciani Make writing your passion, the rest is mechanics. It's also important to find your unique voice. For me, I had to learn to write as I speak. I find that a conversational tone (as if I'm actually talking to the reader) works best for me. In order to find your voice, you must first liberate yourself from perfectionistic striving along with goal-oriented impatience. Writing for the sheer sake of writing, now that's the ticket!
