Goodreads asked Christian A. Brown:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Christian A. Brown Find a fantastic editor. Next, find one or two more highly competent ones. Be open to criticism at all times, while still maintaining a clear idea of what your story should mean. Depending on the depth of the tale you are trying to tell, you could end up writing a LOT of material. In two years or so, I typed out four 700 page manuscripts, each one from a different period of my world, before settling on the point from which the story was best told.
