Goodreads asked Cleo Patra:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Cleo Patra Since I'm still an aspiring writer myself, I'll do my best to give advice to other aspiring writers. Writing is very hard, but fulfilling work. Start writing what you feel, no matter what it is. Buy a journal and write in it everyday. It don't have to be very long and/or complicated. Write short and simple. Write what's in your heart. Don't pretend to be someone else. You're unique, why do you want to be fake copy?
Believe in yourself and in your writing. No matter what others might say. Practice, practice the same why you do with everything else in your life.
NEVER GIVE UP!! No matter how difficult things might be right now. Always remember, when there's no way through a mountain create your own unique way around the mountain.
