My advice is to find a reason to write that does not depend on outside validation. Write because you want to read the story you're writing. Write because you want to explore an idea, a world, a character. Learn to do it better, and learn from other people's input, but even doing that is a good way to make sure that what you write will be a story you want to read.

Another of my favorite pieces of writing advice is that everything you write is necessary to get to the words after that. Write 1000 words, a story, a novel, and feel like it fails on some level? That's okay--without writing those words, you could never have written the words you wrote next.(less)

I always wanted more information about him and his era than what history books and the Icelandic sagas gave me. That desire grew into The Half-Drowned King and its sequels.(less)

Sequels don’t often make year-end best-of lists, which makes me extra happy to see The Sea Queen appear on Book and Film Globe’s.
