Read a lot, and not only of the genre you write about, expand your horizons by reading other genres.
Keep writing! And when writer’s block hits, and it will. Keep the juice flowing by writing descriptions of everyday objects. I have an essay about my computer mouse somewhere… Just keep writing.
Do the research and do it thoroughly.
Try to go beyond what you wanted to do in the first place.
Don’t overdo it!
Find an editor, no matter how good you are (or think you are) editors are your best friends.
Accept all criticism, yes, even the hateful criticism. Develop a thick skin, but not so thick as to blind you about the constructive criticism.
Trust your editor.
Don’t rush it! It will come, if you’re not satisfied with what you wrote. Erase it and write it again.
In this day and age, writers need to become marketers as well, so research and prepare a marketing plan for when that manuscript is ready.
