Goodreads asked Christopher F. Reidy:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Christopher F. Reidy Write! The more you write, the better at it you become. Try not to worry about things that are out of your control, like money, fame, prestige etc. Seek out other writers and writing groups and consider yourself a writer (even if you're not making money from it). Write for yourself first. Overwrite. You can always edit later.
