Goodreads asked Adam Alexander:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Adam Alexander I'm really not the person to ask! But, seeing as you did, and with the caveat that I probably don't know what I'm talking about; two things:

(1) Outline your novel before you start. If you don't you'll just end up with a rambling mess of a story.

(2) Write something every day, even if you think it's terrible. It's a lot easier to revise a badly written manuscript than to publish an empty page.
