Goodreads asked Mark S. Bacon:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Mark S. Bacon Keep at it. If you love writing, consider that while you’re working on the Great American Novel, you can still be a professional writer by creating other things such as advertising, commercial websites, public relations, speeches, technical manuals/instructions, direct mail, annual reports, ghost writing projects and lots more.

A writer is someone who starts with a blank screen or sheet of paper and produces something that communicates clearly.
