Goodreads asked N.J. Walters:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

N.J. Walters Write. There are no short cuts. You have to actually do the work when there is no guarantee of publication at the end. You also have to learn to deal with rejection as it's a big part of this business. Don't take it personally.

But if you love to write, have to write, then you will. Don't give up.
