Writer Wednesday… Myla Jackson…

Today’s writer wednesday is …Myla Jackson

What’s the one thing that remains unchanged during your writing process, from one book to another? (ie: Intensive plotting? Music?)

A: Focus. I have to focus on one project at a time and push my way through.

What’s the one piece of advice you’d give a new writer?

A: Keep your day job! Writing is not for the risk averse. It’s a tough business with unpredictable income.

What’s the one piece of advice you wish was wiped from the minds of writers everywhere?

A: That there’s only one right way to write a book. Writing rules are guidelines you don’t always have to follow.

What’s the one book you think everybody, writer or not, should read?

A: The book of life. There is no one book for everyone to read. Live your life! Books can enrich and make life a better experience, but nothing beats getting out and exploring the possibilities yourself.
