Goodreads asked Candace L. Talmadge:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Candace L. Talmadge Bless you, for you have chosen a solitary and usually not financially rewarding vocation. Unless you get up in the morning and can't wait to get writing, I suggest trying something else. You have to be obsessed with writing or you won't stick with it.
