Goodreads asked Alison Ragsdale:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Alison Ragsdale Just start - get something down on paper and you're off and running. The worst thing you can do is think about it too long, or talk yourself out of diving in. Once you've started - keep reading and writing and network with other writers who can inspire and encourage you.
