What advice can you give to other writers?

Write, write, write. Don’t be shocked to find that your talent takes much longer than expected to develop and even longer to be recognized by the publishing industry. To make up for the probable long-term lack of financial reward, writing gives you the intense satisfaction of creation and the knowledge that everything that happens to you, good or bad, is immensely worthwhile and significant because it is the basis of future writing. Writing can change your life, because it gives you permission to intensely examine events and emotions, sometimes resulting in life-altering insights.
