What advice do you have for young writers especially if they want to write for a living?
Be prepared to not make a living at it right away. At least, not completely. I hope for every young writer to have the thrill of overnight success, but I didn't and most writers don't. So have a fallback plan. Have a job that can support you while you get your writing off the ground. But don't let that job stop you from writing, writing, writing!
