Goodreads asked Jayne Lockwood:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Jayne Lockwood Do it, but don't expect to be the next J K Rowling or E L James. There are people who hit paydirt but most don't. Do it for the craft, and have faith in yourself. If you don't like what you've written, no-one else will either.
