Goodreads asked Ariane Arborene:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Ariane Arborene Just write. Don't talk about it. Don't ponder it. Get down to it and write. Talking about writing is the biggest waste of time any writer can engage in. Do not talk. Write. Be tough on your writing. Set it aside and if you hate it later, delete it. Start over. Be tough on yourself.
