Goodreads asked Matthew Hanlon:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Matthew Hanlon I would advise anyone aspiring to write to follow Joe Lansdale on Twitter or Facebook, and he'll shout at you every few days that you should really just be writing.
And it's great advice. Set some time up, make it a routine, but make sure you give it a good shot every day or every couple days to keep the muscles limber. Hopefully you'll find the regularity of it, even at half hour bursts, gets your pen or fingers going like I do.
