Goodreads asked Susan Thurston:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Susan Thurston Read. Always be reading. And dive into the genres you might not feel like writing. Move through your day as if you were a that tuned in to all that's around you as if it could be the only or last time you'd experience it. And then write. And then write some more. And then read what you've written as if you didn't write it and be brutal in your editing of it.
