Goodreads asked William Klaber:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

William Klaber weed your garden. be ruthless. be lean. don't say in nine words what you can say in six. don't let modifiers steal the power from your words. is completely alone any more alone than alone? all adjectives are under suspicion. all adverbs are guilty until proven innocent.
