Goodreads asked Maggi Andersen:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Maggi Andersen Read a lot in the genre which interests you, but also other books. Look at what is on book shelves and Amazon. What sells? Why? If you're not strictly a panster, plan your novel with a short synopsis. Write everyday, don't fuss over the words get the story down. Edit thoroughly. Don't send it out until it's as perfect as you can get it.
