Goodreads asked Hayden Trenholm:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Hayden Trenholm Read broadly, especially outside the style or genre you want to write in -- but read in that genre, too, including books that were written a long time ago. Beyond that, write regularly. Not necessarily everyday but at a few definite times of week. If you schedule writing rather than writing when the muse strikes, you will learn to write even when you aren't 'inspired.' Inspiration is mostly a matter of hard work.
