We had the good fortune of connecting with Devon Commons and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Devon, what habits do you feel helped you succeed?
Staying humble keeping God, first because i can’t do nothing without him. Also staying down and keeping the faith in what I’m trying to succeed in which is my craft of writing.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I always as Devon Commons, was built different from other’s i grew up with and family members, i kind of stand out from them as growing up. Also I’ve been working for myself since i was younger always had a hustle far as making my own moves and money my way without begin a worker but a boss as i am and always will be. And what I’m most proud of is to be able to pursue my dreams as a Writer, film producer and overcome foolishness far as, making wrong choices in life not listening to instructions as i should. The only reason I am who i am today is for me begin humble and begin focus i mean very focus on what i was born to do is to write and tell great stories for the world to remember and consider the work that’s been put in front of them. I wouldn’t have came this far in my career as a film producer, screenwriter, and publish author if it wasn’t for God, not listening. Or begin humble Also my father Philip Commons, encourage me to do so, as a kid. I took a lot of risks and losses along the way as when i started my career but, I’ m good now and keeping focus on other great things to come my way as i keep pushing.
Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
We’ll as begin me if my best friend comes to visit me down in Atlanta, i would first take them to Lenox mall to shop a bit because i have to stay fly everywhere i go. Also golden Carroll to eat because we will get to eat whatever we want my friends will love to eat there. Plus my friends know i love to joke around, laugh a lot so, we would visit my uncle’s house Johnny, to have fun with parties favors and laugh are butts off for sure. We would visit tyler Perry studios for one shoot a couple of short films clips to show them how set life is so much fun but on my time not at the perry studio. Also watch a lot of horror movies and for last party with the most beautiful woman on my team.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’ve been writing stories since i was fourteen thanks to my father Philip Commons, that passed away when i was seventeen years of age. I dedicated my first book to him because he told stories late nights to me and my twin brother Deion Commons, he always pushed us both to write and develop great characters in whatever genre we felt like writing in such as horror, for sure, and thrillers that will keep you on the edge. Since I’ve been a publish author my twin brother once again Deion Commons, always call me on the phone with interesting stories to write but he never said that he wanted any credit for me writing his ideas but, i was willing to give him all the credit in my second book because those stories came from his twisted mind in which i honor him for doing so.
