Goodreads asked J.J. White:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

J.J. White Write. Then write some more.
Read. And then read some more.
Then enter as many competitions as you can and query as many agents as you can. But if you're a good enough writer, the agents and publishers will come to you, eventually. Patience. Nothing good is ever accomplished overnight.
