Interview with Elona WashingtonAll too often, we make decisions from a place of pain and fear Click To Tweet
When did you realize you had a book (or some books) inside you?
It was my childhood experiences that motivated me to write. As I got older, the choices I made took me down paths which different drastically from my upbringing. It was those choices which finally prompted me to write a book.
Why is the theme of this project important?
The theme is important because, hopefully, it will help other women ascertain the root of their decision-making. All too often, we make decisions from a place of pain and fear that force us to live with those choices years later.
What did you learn about yourself while writing this book?
I learned that I’m a lot stronger than I once believed. And much of my healing was self-motivated. I never had a traditional support system and learned about myself and life through trial and error.
How do you find time to write?
This is a funny question. My friend reminded me I’d been talking about writing this book for more than five years. However, it wasn’t until I was laid off of my job that I got the proper motivation and determination to do so.
If you could work on a writing project with anyone (dead or alive), who would it be? Why?
I’d love to work on a writing project with Oprah. Much of her healing was self-taught as well and our childhood stories are similar.
