Q&A with author Jen Michalski

Q&A with author Jen Michalski

What was the hardest lesson you've learned so far? "That, as a writer (but more importantly as a person), failure is inevitable. You have to put it all aside and keep working, because you're not writing for anyone's approval or publication or your legacy. You're writing for yourself." What's a fact about yourself that will surprise people? "For a so-called 'creative' person, I'm very regimented. I get up the same time, take my dog out for walks at the same time, eat meals at the same time. I only get chocolate snowballs with marshmallow, although every year I tell myself I will try something different." What do you do to relax?...
