Goodreads asked Rachel Madbury:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Rachel Madbury Read a lot. Write a lot. Don't be afraid to just journal the crap out of your head if that's all you want to do for a while. Getting out of your own way is probably the number one thing that will help you be a better writer; because it's the only way you'll be able to write at all. And read Bird by Bird by Anne LaMott. So good.
