Goodreads asked Maureen A. Griswold:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Maureen A. Griswold Go out and live in the world, engage with it in contrast to merely sitting at a desk thinking you can write about it. LIVE your life -- have experiences that challenge you, even those that may make you struggle. In time, you'll have a wealth of experience, some wisdom, and a perspective unique to you. This makes your writing distinctive and -- hopefully -- worthwhile and memorable for readers.
