Julia Fierro runs the The Sackett Street Writers’ Workshop and recently published her first novel Cutting Teeth. To promote the new novel she has been doing interviews, as any other writer would. In an unusual twist, she has interviewed herself.
In the interview published on The Nervous Breakdown blog, the New York-based writer talks about how she manages to find the time to write as she raises two kids and runs the writing workshop. She also reveals her fears and her dark taste in television. Here is an excerpt from the interview:
It is amazing what you can accomplish if you abandon all household chores that aren’t absolutely essential. Sure, we’re living in chaos, but mom’s making great progress on her next novel and the number of Sackett Street writers attending classes has doubled in the last three years. It turns out that women can “have it all”—they might be miserably tired, suffer from high blood pressure, and not have enough time to eat well, exercise or have meaningful relationships, but you can do anything when you don’t give yourself a reason not to.
