Goodreads asked Rachel Howzell Hall:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Rachel Howzell Hall Keep writing even when you think your work sucks. Cuz first drafts, especially, suck. But it will get better since you will revise and revise and revise. That's what writing is. And READ! Read everything. It expands your mind, lets you see how another writer is doing it right or not doing it well. And last, enjoy the process -- do it for the love and not for money. Money's great but spending time doing something you'd do for free is greater.
