"If you could say one thing to aspiring novelists, what would you say?"
Enjoy the books you get to write without a contract. They will be the sweetest works you'll ever have the pleasure to produce. Once writing becomes a job, a lot of the magic is lost. If I could do things over again, I'd write a hundred first books before I even thought of getting them published.
