Goodreads asked Lee Bradford:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Lee Bradford Writing is hard. You will absolutely tear your hair out, scream at the screen, and hover your novel over the 'recycle bin' icon.

Write it anyway.

You will always hate something about your work. You will always feel like it isn't good enough. You will always foresee negative reviews and messages from people on social media who would rather hide their face behind the word 'anonymous.'

Write it anyway.

Because even if no one reads it, you wrote it. You wrote something that's important to you and that's more than most people can say.

Write it anyway.
