Goodreads asked Robert Ogden Buford:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Robert Ogden Buford Write every day, in the same place, at the same time, before the day's activities steal your writing time. Write SOMETHING! It almost doesn't matter what you write. Just exercise those writing muscles. And work on your creativity. Look for books to read that address developing more creativity. It will help you come up with new writing ideas. Listen to what people have say. I can't tell you how many ideas I've picked up for a story just by paying attention.
