Goodreads asked Elisabeth Kidd:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Elisabeth Kidd Learn your craft! I've taught writing too, and found that while most beginning writers have good ideas, they may be weak on organization and (goodness knows!) a lot of beginners are poor on grammar and punctuation. "I learned to write in third grade," seems to be the reasoning, "how hard can it be?" Honey, it's hard.
