Goodreads asked Pattie Baker:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Pattie Baker Honestly? Stop writing if you can. If it's not like oxygen to you. If there is anything, anything, else you can do instead. But if you can't, accept the blessing (or curse) of your calling and just tell the story. It's really as simple as that.
