I’ve been out of my comfort zone a lot, and it makes me more vulnerable, but I have to draw the line somewhere, and don’t think I would go skydiving!

It’s important to build trust if you’re trying to deal with big things. Big issues require everybody to get outside their comfort zone, and people are more willing to do so if they believe that their partner is sincere in their efforts. And the only way you can do that is to engage them on a personal level.

I reached rock bottom halfway through college. And it was – because of all the pressure that I think we’re talking about right now – the pressure to learn how to budget, the pressure to really abandon everything that you ever learned. You don’t have a comfort zone anymore. You don’t have your neighborhood. You don’t have your family with you.
I like learning stuff. The more information you can get about a person or a subject, the more you can pour into a potential project. I made a decision to do different things. I want to do things that have a better chance of being thought of as original. I do everything I can to disrupt my comfort zone.

When I look for the next project, it’s always about, ‘Is it going to push me out of my comfort zone? Am I doing something different? Am I working with people who are passionate about what they’re doing?’ At the end of the day, if I’m going to be bored on set, then I’m not gonna be happy.

There have been some brilliant and very successful standalone books that work in themselves and also seem to refresh a series. Anyone who writes a series lives in fear of it becoming stale, so you do whatever you can to keep it fresh – although it does feel a bit nerve-racking to write outside of your comfort zone.
