Goodreads asked Caty Waterfield:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Caty Waterfield Don't stop! Just get it down. The first draft is always, ALWAYS, (one more time for the people in the back), *always* going to suck. That's just the way it is; your first draft has a right and a duty to suck, that's why it exists. But, remember. Your first draft is as bad as it's ever going to be. You got this!
