Goodreads asked Scott Rhine:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Scott Rhine Write. Get constructive criticism (not your mom or friends who will say nice things). Write more. Going from shorts to novels took me ten years. Carry two pens and a notebook. Join groups like Authonomy or IndieWriters on Facebook. Find a professional group that offers classes, like RWA or SFWA. And write every day.
