Rebeca Seitz (Advice for Novelists, Part 20)

The talented Ms. Seitz answers our question today:

"If you could say one thing to aspiring novelists, what would you say?"

I'd say, "Do you love stories?" I mean, deep down, in the place where
you're the truest you, do you love stories? If stories are your passion,
then everything else can be taught. If it isn't, though, you're setting
yourself up for frustration and heartache with no redeeming value. Think before you take the steps down that novelist's road. When you get to its end, will you be where you intended?
