Goodreads asked Pat Powers:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Pat Powers Agitate politically for Basic Income. You're going to need it. The most difficult element of writing for most people is having money to live on. You must either work, spending precious writing time at it, or live in great poverty ... sometimes both, if you are not born into wealthy circumstances. Fortunately, as automation proceeds, almost everyone is going to be as welcome in the workplace as writers, which is to say, not welcome at all. This should make for a political climate that will make Basic Income more successful.
