Goodreads asked K.C. West:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

K.C. West Read everything and anything that interests you. Keep your eyes, mind, and heart open to new ideas. If you intend to write for publication, consider your readership. Make sure what you write has a message for them and fills a need. Also, grow a thick skin about your writing. You will have to make compromises. Rewriting is much harder than it sounds.
Don't give up, though.
