Goodreads asked Melissa Ann Goodwin:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Melissa Ann Goodwin Everyone will say, "Set aside some time every day to write," so I won't say that! My best advice is to read aloud what you have written. This will reveal all the flaws - repetitive wording, poor cadence, overuse of "he said, she said," unnecessary wordiness.
