Goodreads asked Nancy E. Blanton:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Nancy E. Blanton Write what you love, because you may be living with it for a long time. Writing can be difficult and discouraging, and when you want to quit you will find yourself framing sentences in your head when you are driving, walking, showering, whatever, and then you realize you are a writer whether you want to be or not. So write, and love it. If you spend much time worrying about getting published you will drive yourself crazy, so don't!
