Goodreads asked Nancy Rossman:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Nancy Rossman Attend writers' workshops where you stay and do all kinds of writing type things. They tend to be a week long and you'll get the energy and direction you need. Five is usually enough

Read as many respected "how to write" books as you can stand without throwing up.

DO NOT participate in a writers' group where you critique each other's work in progress. Bad idea and easy to lose your voice.
