Goodreads asked V.M. Gautier:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

V.M. Gautier You don't have to "aspire" to write. You just need to do it. If you want to hone your skills, there's a lot you can do -- read books on the craft, take workshops, join groups (real or virtual), look for places to showcase work and get feedback, etc. Just remember, NOT everything you write needs to be published. Even with self-publishing, REAL writers don't push the button until they know a work is ready.
