Goodreads asked Linden S. Barclay:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Linden S. Barclay Write often, write every day. NEVER, ever delete anything you write. There is something in every word you commit to the creative process. Find others to write 'with' - writing is a lonely business, and if you can find some people to share with, a local writers' group perhaps, it can help. Keep a dream journal, you might be sleeping but your mind keeps on creating even in sleep, oh, and learn to do without a lot of sleep. Characters have no boundaries when it comes to when they will 'speak' to you... and sometimes you have to get it down right away.
