Piech: Do you have any advice for beginner writers?

Abdou: Don't quit your day job. Really. If you're looking to get rich or famous, lottery tickets would give you better odds. Write because you love it, and write what you want to write. Of course, there are tips that can make you better at it and, therefore, make it even more enjoyable - but for those you have to come to my workshop.
