Goodreads asked Olivia Jake:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Olivia Jake Write. Stop making excuses as to why you can’t. Even if it’s just ten minutes every day, carve out whatever time you can, and sit down and just do it. When I first started writing, a good friend told me she’d been wanting to write for years, but just never got around to it. After I published my first few books, she said this again. We’ve all got busy lives, but writing has become my passion. I have to write every day. Not because I have an editor breathing down my neck, but because I miss it when I don’t.
