Goodreads asked Jill Ammon Vanderwood:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Jill Ammon Vanderwood My advice to aspiring writers is to: first--write something that you are passionate about, second--join a writing/critiquing group, third--be willing to share your work with others because that is how you learn and grow as a writer, and fourth--when you are writing, don't worry about whether you are writing a popular topic or who will publish your work, at this point, just let loose and write.
