Goodreads asked Stephen P. Kiernan:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Stephen P. Kiernan Never stop.
I have known plenty of people with huge talent and great potential, and they never had a word in print. Or a story or two, and then nothing.
The ones who made it, who built a life out of writing, were the ones who never quit. They may have had smaller innate gifts, but they worked hard enough that it did not matter.
Never stop.
