Today, Louise shares her writing tips for aspiring authors.
Quite simply, keep writing. Write everyday even if you think it’s rubbish. Ask people to read what you write so you become accustomed to that fear of judgement and read too. I hear a lot of people wistfully say, ‘I’d love to be able to write’ and I always reply, ‘You can, just start’.

Produce content regularly so your audience can rely on you.
There’s no point trying to copy someone else because they are already the experts in their field, be your own unique self because nobody is as good at that as you are.
