What is the best story you have ever written?
C.L. Nelson: To date, "You" but I'm not done writing and I dont think I've written my best work yet.

What is some advice you would give new writers?
C.L. Nelson: Do this because you want to. Many in the publishing world will have you chancge things to better "sell" when in fact, it is to put their own stamp on something you have created. These people were not successful enough to produce anything of any value, so they will tell others how to write. They are the gatekeepers you have to avaoid in order for your creation to be fully appreciated.
