Author Interview

Jessica Hauser

Have you ever met that one girl that simply refused to do things the right way and the easy way? Or how about that girl, that no matter how many times she was knocked down, she still got up? How about that mother or wife who had something to prove to the world? I am that girl, I am that woman - and for that I am proud.

Story: One Last Phone Call

Interview

Each week authors will be given a new question to answer which will lend additional insight into their story and writing process. Do you have a question you'd like to see the authors answer? Tweet it to @aNextAuthor!

Q:
What is the best writing advice you've ever heard?
A:
Write only what you know, and how you want to write it. Sometimes schooling or training in writing will change your angle, your individual special talent.
Q:
When you start a new story do you prepare an outline in advance or do you just jump right in?
A:
When I write, it is because I am moved to do so. There is a need to get it out, or a story I remember that I would like to share. Outlines are a good starting point, but not one that I have used as of yet.
Q:
How do you deal with writing criticism, apart from just ignoring it?
A:
My initial reaction is to correct them - but then I realize that if it bothers me, that there may be some truth there. There is helpful criticism and pointless critiquing, one benefits the writer and the other attempts to break them down.
