Highlight of my day

Thank you Rachel for producing this podcast! It’s been the most enjoyable moment of my work days. I have a really busy working schedule and could only write during the weekends. Transition from my writing days to work days has been the most frustrating every time. This podcast is what kept me learning about my craft on the go. It’s super informative and fun to listen to, and it kept my creative side sharp.
