My Writing Process

By J. M. Tuckerman

J.M.Tuckerman is a neurodivergent writer with a big education. She holds an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults, an MA in Writing, and a BA in Writing Arts (specializing in Creative Writing, New Media Writing, and Publication; concentrating in New Media Production), which she somehow managed to earn despite her three very loud and large dogs. Jessica was lucky enough to intern at Quirk Books and Picador, USA while earning her master’s degrees. Her service dog, Ringo, is very proud of all that she has accomplished and hopes to be on a back cover of a published book with her very soon. An avid reader, writer, and lover of young adult and middle-grade literature, Jessica’s bookshelf is overflowing with hardbacks, paperbacks, and a million half-filled notebooks. She is a proud fur-mommy to two lab/st-bernard littermates, a retriever-mix service dog, and one orange little hobgoblin cat, all of whom have made very audible appearances on the Booked All Night podcast.

  1. Writing isn’t easy and this video understands the notion. It may seem, at times, very rare that people will take time to sit and read and then criticize your work appropriately with an ounce of thought behind their views and ideas. I’m glad that I am not alone in the process and commend your strive through your academic and career goals.

      1. That is not a bad process. Write everything out, edit it so it is coherent and share. Sharing unfinished work can harm a writer’s dedication and confidence. What if someone says, “I didn’t like this bit and I’d like it to end like this.” Now you have this thought in the back of your mind. Let your process happen, let your own juices work their magic and then see what people think. It also helps to have writer’s who want you to succeed read your pieces. Good luck and happy writing.
