Goodreads asked Carl Rollyson:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Carl Rollyson You have to belief in yourself. Quite worrying about the competition and ask yourself why you, as a writer, are uniquely qualified to write. It doesn't matter if you are right. I often begin in a state of self-delusion but eventually I find I actually do have something to contribute.
