Goodreads asked Elise Covert:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Elise Covert I would give the advice everyone else gives, which is write, write, write. But I will add that you should hang out with other writers. There are online groups, local chapters of writers associations, and informal clubs. Hanging out with other writers, going to conferences, joining a critique group - these are the things that helped me journey from having a "writing habit" to becoming a professional writer.
