Goodreads asked Ed Gray:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Ed Gray I've been an editor for more than 30 years, so I've handed out lots of advice, almost all of it specific. In general I'll say this: Ask yourself which describes you better -- you want to be a writer or you have something you really, really want to write, something that nags at you and demands that you bring it to life. If it's the former, don't start till it's the latter.
