Goodreads asked Virginia R Bensen:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Virginia R Bensen Don't try to impress people with your writing skills. During your first draft, write what spills out of you. Then, you go back and edit for a number of things such as continuity, plot, characters, etc. etc.

I found one of the most difficult thing to do was to track your characters. For a number of reasons, I change a few characters names. Back tracking is difficult.
