Goodreads asked Susan Reid:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Susan Reid Continue to write no matter what. Save everything you write, even if you never finished the story. Do not stop writing or get discouraged and please, by all means-- Never give up! If writing makes you happy, keep doing it even in the face of ridicule and negativity. If even just one person read my books and I only ever had one would make no difference and it will never deter me from my passion.
I can't remember who said this but it's very fitting.
"You only fail when you try to please everyone and give up."
