Goodreads asked Nelson Martin:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Nelson Martin Write what you know. Keep your writing to yourself unless you are surrounded by published authors and/or editors. If you share what you have written with anyone else, you're taking the chance of, one, getting feedback from someone who doesn't know jack, two, take off on a tangent that leads nowhere.
