Goodreads asked John Findley:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

John Findley Keep writing, live your life enjoy or perhaps put-up with the changes life brings. All your experiences in your day to day existence help you in recording your life or someone else’s life you are writing about, write about what interests you when you can.

If you need to record on paper some matter that you detest, maybe some evil school teacher sets an assignment.

Then put your best foot forward and write as near the subject set as you can, always keeping in mind what you enjoy thinking about.
