Goodreads asked Lucy David:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Lucy David The advice that was given to me years ago, just write any idea down on anything to begin with. Don't let ideas escape. Then get a small notebook which you can put in your pocket and do the same in that. In other words 'baby steps'. Don't start off thinking,'I must write a novel.' Also join a creative writing group if you can.
