Goodreads asked Alessa Ellefson:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Alessa Ellefson Don't be afraid to write, no matter how daunting the task may seem. Write your ideas down, so you won't forget them, and so you'll free up your mind to come up with even more ideas. As you keep at it, you'll have garnered enough ideas to put together into a story.
Also read a lot. I find that I'm truly inspired to write myself when I read stories from authors I really enjoy.
