Goodreads asked Jeshua Cole:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Jeshua Cole Read. Read lots and lots of books. Read fun well-written novels, and awful novels that are painful to finish; find what they do well, don't do well, and ask what you'd do differently.

Right now, my read to write ratio is approximately 24 to 1, and I know I'm not reading nearly enough.
