Welcome to my interview with Jessica Anne Willette! Let’s learn about her amazing adventure with writing and poetry.
Jessica Anne Willette
Hello Jessica! Please introduce yourself and share 5 fun facts!
Hello, my name is Jessica Anne Willette. I love baking, learning how to cook new recipes, reading, and writing. Most days, I spend time with my brilliant younger sister and my amazingly sweet nephew.
Five fun facts about me:
- I’m currently in the middle of binge-watching Outer Banks on Netflix.
- My favorite snack, while writing, would have to be popcorn with Buncha Crunch, mixed in. Seriously, so delicious!
- Meeting new people due to networking within the writing community is special to me. I’ve met so many wonderful people that have taught me how you can change the world by writing.
- I’ve always wanted to help change even one person’s life for the better. I also thought it would be great if everyone could simply love one another.
- I’ve been patiently waiting to publish my next poetry book on Amazon, “A Boy in Blue Plaid, and The Girl without Lipstick.” If you love poetry and romance, hopefully, you’ll enjoy this book, which is finally being released at the end of June.
What do you love about writing poetry?
The one thing I love about writing poetry is that it gives me an outlet to vent. Writing gives me a way to inhale and exhale my feelings.
What inspired you about your book coming out in the summer?
What inspired me most to write “A Boy in Blue Plaid and The Girl without Lipstick” is found between each line. It’s my heart, my feelings, and all of me.
What are some themes explored in this book?
Some themes I explored in this book would have to be friendship, the understanding of my emotions, and love without constraints.
What’s your favourite thing readers should expect from this collection?
My favorite thing that readers should expect from this collection is like the seasons; sometimes, someone merely is coursing through your life.
Do you have a favourite poem you’ve written?
Right now, my favorite poem that I’ve written would be “Beats & Bleeds.”
What are your future goals as a writer/poet?
My future goals as a poet are to continue self-publishing poetry books, writing poetry that I hope connects with at least one person, and grow as a writer.
What challenges were faced when putting this together?
It would have to be sitting with myself and facing my emotions head-on. Let’s say there were a lot of tears.
At the moment when it comes to notable victories, I would say there were four so far in my life. They include being published in a school paper, having my writing published in an anthology titled “Instagram Poets You’ll Want to Follow,” and completing almost four collections of poems.
What have your learned throughout your writing career?
I’ve learned that some people will love everything you write, there will be a few who only like some of it, and then there will be people who don’t care for it at all. Either way, write!
Is there anything you would change about your experiences?
There’s nothing I would ever change about any experience in life, whether while writing or in any other parts of my life. The person I have grown to become is a person who has endured many trials in life, but I have grown into the person I’m proud to be.
What advice can you give to aspiring poets?
The advice I would offer to other aspiring poets is to continue to write what you feel, no matter what.
What’s your favourite thing about writing poetry?
My favourite thing about writing poetry is connecting who I am to my poems. Every poem that I’ve ever written meant something to me, and even when I struggled, I know the only way for me to produce something I can be proud of is to read it then know this is a part of me. For a long time, I only let my closest family and friends see that part of me, but I’m happy I showed it to the world. So many people thank me, but in all honesty, I’m the one who is thankful for them.
Any last thoughts about yourself or your book your readers should know?
The last thing I want everyone to know is I’ll always lend a listening ear to anyone, and if there’s anyone who ever needs someone to talk to, then never be afraid to send me a message. Much love always, Jay.
