Broken Pieces

Jack Canon's American Destiny

Author Interview – Dean F Wilson

Monday, April 22, 2013

What inspired you to write your first book? A desire to tell a good story and a love of the craft of writing, the medium of words, and a great affinity with language.

Who or what influenced your writing over the years? All of life’s experiences have influenced my writing in some manner. I don’t think there is one defining moment, but rather a series of moments, like the individual scenes of a story.

What do you consider the most challenging about writing a novel, or about writing in general? Discipline. Many people talk about wanting to write a novel, but what holds them back is a lack of discipline to follow through on that aspiration. It takes a lot of time and self-motivation to write a novel, especially with all the possible distractions we have in modern life. Staying focused and determined requires great discipline, and this is a challenge even to the most seasoned of writers.

Did writing this book teach you anything and what was it? The importance of discipline and determination in pursuing a goal.

Do you intend to make writing a career? Yes. It already is, although currently I make more money from journalism than fiction. In time I expect my fiction to be my primary source of income. Being able to pay the bills by doing what I love will mean more, and better, stories to share with the world.

Have you developed a specific writing style? Yes. Some have described it as poetic and lyrical. I read everything I write aloud, and a key part of writing for me is the rhythm of the words, which, in a sense, creates a soundtrack for the novel, accentuating each scene and revealing the sheer potency of language.

What is your greatest strength as a writer? The ability to convey atmosphere and tension, and use words to deliver on multiple levels.
