Goodreads asked C.W. Gortner:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

C.W. Gortner Persevere. Hone your craft by writing as much as you can and never think anything you write is wasted time because it's not. Everything you write, regardless of whether it's published, is another step you take in perfecting your own unique voice. Writing thrives on practice; there is always something new to learn.
