Sitting down with Dominique Wilkins and Kelly AuCoin, the writer and creative, known for his explosive non-fiction work, explains how he fell in love with writing when he was a young boy and the important role that passion and self believe play in making it, especially when facing rejection. 

 

However, having a plan is just as important as passion. And a good plan is not about how to get there, but about knowing where you want to get and putting a time limit. It might sound counter intuitive to put a time limit on a dream, but for the author, it’s a way to keep grounded and in tune with reality, especially in an industry which requires so much sacrifice.
