Goodreads asked Jo M. Thomas:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Jo M. Thomas Write because you need to. Keep writing. Do your best to enjoy the process, or trick yourself into it by rewarding yourself for a job well done every time you come to the end of a writing session.

However, if it's about getting published, remember it's highly improbable any of us will be the next big thing. It takes a certain amount of luck to get noticed and to get things turning over. That said: keep writing. The more you practise, the luckier you'll get.
