Goodreads asked Lisa Shiroff:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Lisa Shiroff Always be willing to listen to criticism of your work. You don't have to agree with it, but be willing to listen to it. No one's writing ever gets to a point where every word is perfect, which means we, all of us, can always improve.
