If you are going to learn from other writers don’t only read the great ones, because if you do that you’ll get so filled with despair and the fear that you’ll never be able to do anywhere near as well as they did that you’ll stop writing. I recommend that you read a lot of bad stuff, too. It’s very encouraging. “Hey, I can do so much better than this.” Read the greatest stuff but read the stuff that isn’t so great, too. Great stuff is very discouraging.
I’ll add to this: few things have been as inspiring to me as reading or watching something that is just a giant pile of crap, so I know that if *this* crap got published/made/released, whatever I’m working on is certainly worthy of the effort.
If we can’t write diversity into sci-fi, then what’s the point? You don’t create new worlds to give them all the same limits of the old ones.
Found this on youtube, hadn’t seen it before, and I don’t know if you’ve posted it before, but I loved it and thought this would be the place for it.

You know when people say “What’s the alternative to cat-calling?” This. This is the alternative.
