Goodreads asked Jory Strong:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Jory Strong Write. But even more importantly, finish stories. It's only by getting to The End that a writer can determine their strengths and weakness and improve.

Accept that writing can and often will be work, not fun. And the inspiration probably isn't going to carry you beyond the first 10 to 25% of the story (if you're lucky). Then it's all about commitment, self discipline, and desire.
