Goodreads asked Sirius Alexander:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Sirius Alexander My first and only piece of advice would be to just write. Ignore all the self help guides and clubs and all that and just sit down somewhere quiet and write some words. Aim small, just 1000, then once you hit that, aim for the next thousand and so on and so on. Soon your first novel will be completed!
