Goodreads asked Ellen Louise Curtis:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Ellen Louise Curtis Never give up. Never stop practicing your craft and challenging yourself. Write from prompts. Get outside your comfort zone. Keep imagining new worlds, new scenarios, and new ways to convey emotion. Take in as many new stories as possible; be it through novels, songs, poems, short stories, or film. Look for inspiration everywhere, and don't be afraid to make mistakes. Get your first draft on paper, and through editing the rest will follow.
