1. Be willing to work hard enough at improving your craft that it scares people.

2. Read widely--in your genre and many others.

3. Get professional help (story development and editing. Psychological, maybe. *winks* After all, you're spending your life in a fantasy world. It weirds some people out.)

4. Strive for excellence in your writing and in its presentation to the world. When you put something out there with errors (most likely, you will--it's almost inevitable) fix them as soon as possible. Ebooks make this easy(ish), so don't hate on the ebook revolution, embrace it as your friend.

5. Don't be afraid to reach out to other authors or to book bloggers. They're just regular folks like you, playing with their imaginary friends, just like you.

6. When you reach out to authors and book bloggers, engage with kindness. Do not feel that you are entitled to ANYTHING, even after you think you've "arrived." You're not. And you haven't.

7. Realize that you will never "arrive" -- there is always room for improvement.

8. Don't write to a market. Write to your passion. Put to the page the story that wants to burst from your heart.

9. If you truly love what you do, don't allow current sales figures to set your future path.

10. Know your characters so well that when you are in a nursing home someday you might very well complain about them not visiting you as often as they should, just like you will the rest of your children (whether it is true or not.)

11. Get a chair with good lumbar, hip, and neck support... and STAY IN IT. Write the doggone books.(less)

“When it touches your soul, truth is like fire," he began. "As you know, when we rest too close to the fire we quickly become uncomfortable. Too close and it even becomes painful. But that doesn't always mean we should try to elude its flames.”
Serena Chase, The Ryn

“Comfort swelled and filled me. I knew you, Rynnaia E'veri, before you were conceived and you are known by me still. You are here by my appointment and none other. Are you ready, now, to know me?

Was I ready to know him? In the library he had shocked me with the forceful heat of his presence, but having gained my attention, he now romanced me with beauty and the gentle warmth of comfort in order to win my heart. Was I ready to know him?”
Serena Chase, The Ryn

“Love would be a shallow sea if it did not allow for forgiveness.”
Serena Chase, The Sunken Realm
