Goodreads asked Dan Mathews:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Dan Mathews Persevere. Grow a thick skin. Never take anything - especially reviews to hart. Be strict - set yourself realistic goals (e.g. write 2k words a day) and force yourself to stick to them. Enjoy your days off and never be afraid to ask. Many have been there before and many will will be there again - no question is a silly question; especially if you don't know the answer!
