Goodreads asked Tricia Stirling:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Tricia Stirling Read everything. Discover what you like. What poets, what fiction writers. Copy things down into your notebook. Start collecting words, metaphors. Play. Love words. Don't be hard on yourself if you what you're writing doesn't completely match up with how you want to write. Just keep writing. Keep reading and discovering, and your voice will come.
