Goodreads asked Melissa Thayer:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Melissa Thayer Don't be afraid. Fear inhibits all good work. Look at your blank page and start with the first true sentence that comes to your head and fill the page with honesty.

Learn craft. It shows you respect your chosen art form and those who have paved the way beforehand.
