Goodreads asked Diana R. Zimmerman:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Diana R. Zimmerman I don't know that I consider myself in a position to be dispensing advise. But since you asked: Write everything, don't worry about how terrible it is and don't throw it away--put it away. When you rediscover it years later, you might be surprised what gems you will find that you can dust off and polish up. Save everything.
