Goodreads asked Marilyn Johnson:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Marilyn Johnson Join or form a writers' group. My writers' group had a huge influence on me, and I still rely on these people for regular feedback and support. They are my first and most influential audience, and they remind me that writing is simply an attempt by one person to communicate with another.
