What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Start!! Write something. To practice opening your creative side, practice writing whatever comes to mind on paper regardless if it makes sense. It will help to free blocks that may be stopping you from starting your book. Write something every day towards your story even if it is only one paragraph.
