On the topic of his writing process, Jonas says, “I get my ideas for articles from everywhere and anything. Sometimes I have an idea in my head when I’m walking around or riding my bike. Sometimes it’s after a conversation I’ve had with someone or something I’ve read in the news. The most important thing to remember is that good writing comes from honest and accurate information based on real experiences. If you have a good idea, write it down.”
