Goodreads asked Peter R. Lapham:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Peter R. Lapham My advice for anyone wishing to write is write want you want to write but write something you KNOW about, and as far as possible to check that your spelling and punctuation are correct. When you think you've finished something edit, edit and edit some more. Pass it to someone you know you can trust to tell you the truth.
