Originally Answered: Can anyone answer these questions for me? its for a senior project?
1. I liked working on cars so much that I made a 36 year career of it. I retired and now have a shop at home for my own personal use.
2. I think Auto shop should be a requirement for all students.
3. I think they are pretty basic at first. But if they offer advanced classes you will learn much more.
4. I was able to take Auto shop in high school. This got me interested. I also helped my dad fix the family cars and learned a lot from him.
5. I think anyone who know the basics of a vehicle benefits from it.
6. I don't think it's a waste of time. But unfortunately with the economy the way it is, it probably would be one of the first classes dropped from the curriculum.
7. I don't think just a high school class will get you a job. College classes will get you a better chance. I went into the military as a mechanic. So with 4 years of experience I got hired at a car dealership.
8. I helps you by giving you a chance to decide if you like it or not.
9. I think the classes would be filled if the class was offered.
10. Cost would be determined by the teachers salary, equipment needed, room for the shop, etc. I don't think anyone on this site could give a close price...sorry
My name is Dan. I live in California. Good luck with the interview.
1) Which social media sites do you use the most? None of them, the internet is already a distraction enough
2) How many hours on average do you spend doing homework? Too much
3) What are some of your favorite books? I'm not listing all of them, but one of my favourites was "Inkheart" by Cornelia Funke

6) Do you plan on going to college? Does this have any effect on how hard you work in school? Yep, and I suppose it does

Originally Answered: Can a writer (speech writer, author, journalist, etc) answer some interview questions for a school project?
1. Why did you choose to become a writer/author?
I don't feel complete unless I'm writing. So, the best choice seemed to be to channel that into a career. I've worked in corporate communications, for social media companies, providing blog content, editing novels. And yes, as a published author writing my own novels.
2. Do you find writing rewarding/fulfilling? What is your favorite aspect of your career?
Yes, I do. I love creating with words. For me the favorite aspect is creating stories and characters that others read and love. That makes the characters come alive. I love that people enjoy reading something I created.
3. Do you find your job stressful? If so how? If not, why?
When you become published there are a lot of people expecting your work to make them money, so there's always worry about whether a book is selling or if a series is doing well. I need to be able to juggle projects and there's constant pressure to put out the next book.
However, all that said - the worst stress was from the corporate communications job. Putting corporate in front of anything amps up the stress because everything that happens in a crisis for someone.
4. What is your least favorite aspect of working as a writer? If you could change anything about your job what would it be?
Actually, it would be just to be able to make a living from the fiction work. I do make a living by writing but that's because I do a massive amount of non-fiction work. In fiction, the pay can be inconsistent. Publishers really only want to focus on a small top-selling percentage of books and quality stories don't always get the attention they need.
5. Do you feel this job allows you the freedom to pursue other interests or do you feel as though working consumes a lot of your time and energy?
Both? Okay, to be an author you almost have to be so consummed by the need to write that you forget the world exists. On the other hand, to create great stories, you have to get out and experience the world. So, when I become involved in something outside writing, it tends to turn into writing research. I spent a year with a ghost hunting team to research a novel. That was fun.
6. What are your plans for the future? Do you hope to advance as a writer or do you want to start work in a different field?
I left the corporate job because it wasn't allowing me any time for writing. So, currently I'm focusing on my fiction. But I'm also working with a social media company as a second career. (If you want to be a writer, get involved in social media and learn about it. I'm more versed in it than some of the kids in the office who are half my age because I was never able to "get old" and let technology pass me by.)
7. What courses did you take in college? Do you feel they prepared you for your job?
I have a MA in Creative Writing. The graduate writing workshops were probably the most use, but writers have to write about other things, so any course can help build the knowledge you'll need later. Friends who write historical fiction have degrees in History or archeology. Also, languages. Study other languages and other cultures.
8. Who do you think is most suited to work as a wrtiter? What characteristics should they possess?
Writers are often slightly introverted but with a fascination with other people. Writers need to be comfortable spending large periods of time alone and focused on their work. Now, they may delve into a novel non-stop for weeks then surface for air and do all sorts of crazy non-writing things. But the trade off is that you need to be heads down in the writing to get through projects. So, dedication and focus. But aslo a life long sense of curiousity.
9. Would you recommend this job to others? What advice do you have for those aspiring to become authors?
I have taken to answering this the same way one of my graduate professors did. He told each and every class that they should all drop out of the writing program and go next door to enroll in the business college. Because the only sensible decision is NOT to be a writer. It's a career that will set you up for constant rejection with failure always looking around the corner. You need to want this so badly that you will ignore all the sensible advice people give you and continue to strive to succeed rejection letter after rejection letter. Most writers don't fail because they're rejected. The vast majority just give up and drift away from writing, often before they ever finish that book their working on.
