Goodreads asked Travis Neighbor Ward:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Travis Neighbor Ward My advice is to write for yourself -- write the stories that you want to write -- but always keep in mind the goal of having others read them. So, you need to allow yourself to be free to explore your imagination fully without judging yourself (i.e., without censoring yourself), yet you also need to understand that you have a responsibility towards making it the best that you can so others can enjoy it, too.
