Ola Pennington asked Kristin Hannah:

Hi! Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?

Kristin Hannah Hi Ola---Good luck!!! Here are my favorite pieces of advice: 1. Writer's write. Write as often as you can. Make time for it, make it a priority. 2. Keep showing up. In other words, keep writing. Even when it's difficult, or when your work is rejected, or when you want to quit. You only fail when you quit. and 3. Read and learn. Take classes, find a critique partner, go to conferences. Surround yourself with other writers and DON'T GIVE UP. :)
