Goodreads asked Mina Harker:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Mina Harker Let the first draft be absolute shit. Don't try to nit pick little things or edit as you write. Just put it down on the page and be secure in the knowledge that whatever you put on the page, you can change before you show it to anyone. Also, if you want custom cover art, save up. Like really, really save up. And start looking now. Like right now, right now. Deviant art is a good place to start.
