Neal Stephenson

Yes, the Neal Stephenson came to my office today and answered questions. We bring in a lot of authors. I asked him the obligatory "What advice can you give to an Aspiring Science Fiction Writer?"
He made a few good points:
  • The Science Fiction Market is extremely competitive
  • You may have a great SF idea but you need to also be a great writer
  • Getting published requires a lot of hard work and self sacrifice
  • If you don't succeed at first, move on to another project. Your skills can only improve.
He talked a lot about his books and life and was pretty enjoyable.
