Interview – Award Winning Poet & Author David Ellis Chats About Creativity With Francois Keyser, Children’s Author Of The Junglies

Hey there everyone.

Just a quick post before I put out the latest Author Interview later tonight.

I myself have been interviewed by my good friend and author Francois Keyser of the very entertaining Children’s Book Series “The Junglies” over at his website.

Francois asks me some excellent questions and I talk in detail about my inspirations, how I create my poetry and my views on poetry in general, my stance on traditional publishing versus self-publishing, advice on getting published/promoting yourself, my books, writer resources that I provide access to and other general advice for aspiring writers.

Still want more? But I wrote loads in the interview and almost sprained both of my thumbs! OK, you win. If we are to succeed in the writing world or in any creative endeavour, we must be determined, resilient and keep at it, we can never give up and must relentlessly pursue our passions if we are to make a breakthrough in our careers.
