We had the good fortune of connecting with Zylia Knowlin and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Zylia, what habits do you feel helped you succeed?
Some habits that have helped me to develop into the successful writer than I am today mainly has to do with remaining organized, positive, dedicated and focused on getting my goals. Utilizing organizational skill such as mapping out my year and or using semantic webs has really helped me to gain a strong handle on the look and feel of the way I want to shape my future. Additionally, by creating organizational systems has really helped me to make time for all things that are important to me

My city Miami/Fort Lauderdale is bustling with fun and exciting things to do:

There’s always Las Olas where you will find a number of quaint bars and restaurants.
We can go to South Beach and let our hair down.
We can rent a party bus, and grab a few friends and head to Wynwood.

If you want more how about visiting Blue Martini or LIV for a hot night out.

There’s tons of excitement here in Fort Lauderdale/Miami area.

When visiting my area you you find fun in the sun just about everyday of the year

We could visit some of the local eateries and or just sit back by the poolside.

Whatever you want to do, you can definitely find here in South Florida.
