What advice would you give to someone writing their first novel?

Mostly it's write. Young writers often think they can dash off that story, and the fact is, like any other craft, you must practice. So, put butt in seat and fingers on keyboard and write. And keep writing. Then rewrite.
And do it some more.

Best, R. E. F.
