Fellow Rocking Horse author Rebecca Jaycox talks about the inspiration behind her writing .
I don’t have a sacred space to write in, and I didn’t become a writer because of a book—not to say I don’t love to read, because I do—but rather a movie. Discovering Star Wars as a tween made me want to become a writer, and these days I end up doing most of my writing in a notepad on the love seat in front of my TV. After writing my first book, “The Other Inheritance,” on my computer, I’ve developed an allergy to writing the sequel on anything electronic. I just can’t do it. Unfortunately for me, I’m most comfortable putting pen to paper, which means I have to type all those messy, handwritten notes later. I’ve essentially doubled my workload, but who ever said writers were efficient? I simply claim this oddity as the privilege of being an artist. That seems to explain most weird habits away.
