LOCATION: Transient. Usually in the US or Europe.
WHAT’S YOUR HUSTLE: I write novels. But you don’t hustle writing. It hustles you. If you’re lucky maybe you get back something in return.
WHAT DOES YOUR HUSTLE MEAN TO YOU: Telling stories the best I can. And hoping to create something lasting along the way.
IF YOU COULD HAVE ONLY THREE TOOLS FOR YOUR HUSTLE, WHAT WOULD THEY BE: Paper, pen and coffee. You don’t need the coffee. You probably don’t even need the paper and pen.
A WORD OF ADVICE TO WANNABE HUSTLERS IN YOUR FIELD: Decide if you really want to do this. Writing novels is pretty much guaranteed to make you broke, depressed and crazy, sometimes all at once. Then do it anyway and never doubt yourself. This is impossible advice for an impossible job.
Justin’s first novel The Steady Running of the Hour will be published by Simon & Schuster in February 2014.
