Goodreads asked Alexie Aaron:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Alexie Aaron Write. Look at the world around you. Dig into the cracks and the cushions of the couches. Write about what you've found. Also, realize even editors need someone else to look their work over. No one is perfect. Forgive yourself for mistakes or 'dud' books. Those beautiful 'perfect' classics had a team of editors and copy editors behind them. Above all if you aren't enjoying it, don't do it. It shows.
