Goodreads asked Jack Adler:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Jack Adler Consider what sort of material interests you. Fiction or nonfiction?
What genre? Science fiction, thriller, horror, etc? Pick an idea that
interests you, prepare a tentative outline, and starting writing. Get
something on paper/screen which can lead to more development
of the idea.
