Goodreads asked Kathy Miner:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Kathy Miner This has been said so many times, but it just can't be said enough: Study the craft. Learn to be a master craftsman with your tools, the most basic of which are grammar, spelling and punctuation. Errors pull your reader out of the story - you never want that to happen! Finally, read Mr. Stephen King's excellent book, "On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft."
