Goodreads asked Roger Gordon:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Roger Gordon Take some courses in creative writing, as I did.- not necessarily university courses, they could be community-driven ones. Join a writing group and mix socially and intellectually with other aspiring writers. Take criticism thankfully and not personally. Try and be patient, as the process of publication is another hill to climb once you have completed your writing.
