Goodreads asked Conor Walsh:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Conor Walsh Not sure that aspiring writers can give aspiring writers advice, but what the hell. I say if you like writing, write! There are all sorts of self-help guides saying "oh you have to do exactly this" or "here are three neat steps that will help you write" or "Gregor Samsa spills his secrets on how to write the perfect novel," and while these might indeed all be helpful I hold to the "if you want to write better, keep writing!" adage. You'll get discouraged; we all do. Practice, as they say.
