Goodreads asked Heidi Pitlor:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Heidi Pitlor Read, read and read. Be kind to yourself. Allow yourself to take risks. But most importantly: allow yourself to write quickly and badly. And then revise the hell out of it, but only when you've finished the first draft.
