Questions Regarding a Career in Writing

Posted by Jason Rock on 04/02/2017

Hi Greg! My name is Jason Rock, I am a student at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, and I was hoping you could answer some questions about careers in writing. Firstly, I am wondering about your path through the education system, where and what did you study? What is you favorite thing about being a writer? Least favorite? Do you have any advice for someone interested in a career in writing? Thanks for reading, Jason

Hello, Jason-- I took a degree in English at San Diego State College, and minored in science, all the time writing (I had already sold a couple of stories when I graduated.) Favorite thing about being a writer is being published--least favorite is finding roadblocks to getting published! Especially when the writing is difficult, which it almost always is. As for advice--keep at it. Keep writing, don't let anything get you down, and keep learning and getting better at it!
