Goodreads asked Clare Dowling:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Clare Dowling Persevere. Very few people get published on their attempt. Rejection, rewriting, starting again - it's all part of the process. Take the time to learn your craft through reading, writing every day and joining writing groups. Find ways of reaching readers through blogs and online publishing.
