Goodreads asked Shel Craig:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Shel Craig There are many writers out there with great advice. Some have written books on writing that can help you out. But my favourite probably comes from Neil Gaiman -I'll paraphrase since I don't recall the quote exactly - write one word, then the next, and the next until finished.

Just start. If you need more help, I found Ray Bradbury's and Stephen King's books on writing to be a great help.
