sfsignal-biglogo001Every so often I have the massive honour of being asked to contribute to one of SF Signal’s Mind Melds, wherein the august genre news site gathers the great and the good, and some lowly publisher types too, to offer opinions on a particular topic. Being far more of a backroom boy these days, it was a major shock to find myself amongst some of my idols in this week’s Mind Meld, on the topic of the best writing advice one ever received. Robert Silverberg, Gene Wolfe, Walter Jon Williams… oh wow, I am definitely not worthy!

Check out their sage words if you have any intention of becoming, or any experience of being, a writer.
