Here is some of his advice:
If you want to be something, start being it. If you want to write; write.
If you are not doing that thing that you should be doing? You need to ask yourself why not? If you sit down to write you may feel like getting sick when you sick when you sit down to write, well you need to become more tolerant of that and work through it.
Consume the things you like; art, poetry, stories, novels.
Get your work in front of other people.
There are a lot of courses out there that tell you if you complete them that you will be a creative professional. But, writing is also a business. You don’t always need to feed into that. #
Again, if you want to write then write.
And read. And read critically, revise and question.
