Goodreads asked Viccy Adams:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Viccy Adams Edit! Then edit again! Then get someone to read it and give you constructive, honest feedback and learn how to listen to what they're saying and how to weigh their advice against your instincts.

Incidentally, I don't think there's such a thing as an 'aspiring' writer. Either you write or you don't. Publication/readership is a whole separate thing.
