Goodreads asked Francesca Hampton:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Francesca Hampton Much has been written by better writers than me on this - and certainly by more successful ones! But I might add this idea. Take a moment from time to time to imagine the unknown people who may read what you are writing one day, and send out a sincere wish that they may find some benefit in what you have made. You may also ask yourself what it is that WOULD benefit others who read your writing, and write, at least partly, in accord with the answers you find.
