What is the best piece of advice you would give to someone that wants to get into writing?
Art inspires art. Read and learn from other writers. I still do this. Whenever I get stuck (and that’s often,) I read. It doesn’t matter if it’s in the same genre or completely different. I read to get a feel for the story. How did they describe things? How did they set the tone with dialogue and setting? What made me laugh or cry? When a book isn’t helping, I look at a painting, sculpture, or photograph for another source of inspiration.
