Goodreads asked D. Jackson Leigh:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

D. Jackson Leigh Read as much as you write. Get a good editor and listen to them. Even editors need an editor because you can't objectively edit your own copy.

I also listen to audiobooks because words are my music. Your brain interprets things from your ear differently, I think, and it will enhance your pacing and structure.
