Goodreads asked Rose LaCroix:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Rose LaCroix Don't do what I did when I was first starting out. I isolated myself from outside influence to try to keep my style "pure." That was a mistake. Read other authors in your favorite genres and see how they do it. Do brief stories where you try to imitate their styles, then by and by distance yourself from their style by writing the way you want to.
