Goodreads asked Catherine Ryan Hyde:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Catherine Ryan Hyde Expect rejection, and make up your mind in advance that you won't let it stop you. All writers get rejections (and self-pubbed authors get bad reviews, which are more or less the emotional equivalent). The only way--I think--to be happy and successful as a writer is to find a way through them.
