Goodreads asked Valerie Lofaso:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Valerie Lofaso You've heard it before from other writers, but I'm going to say it again because it's the best advice: read as much as you can of all kinds of books, and write as much as you can.

And also, write for YOU, not for anyone else. What I mean by that is don't write according to what you think others want to read, but what is coming from inside you. Stay true to you.
