We’re near yet another anniversary of this blog, and alas, I cannot afford to continue paying for it to not have popups and such. I sincerely apologize to my faithful readers (hi Mom!). It’s been a few years for me on this writing journey. Sometimes I get a bit down when thinking about it, howContinue reading “The Ads Are Coming Back”
The great Ernest Hemingway is one of my favorite old-time authors. His economical prose, his searing portraits of the human condition’s darker side, his drink recipes; they’re all things I truly enjoy. One of the biggest myths surrounding his near-legend is that he, being the alcoholic he was, drank while writing his masterpieces. This wasContinue reading “Holy Crap, A Whole New Post”
Holy Crap He’s Alive?
You just wouldn’t know it if you followed the blog. So, the good news is I’m not dead. The better news is I haven’t been blogging because I’ve been immersed in a new and exciting project (the one I teased a few times over in the past). The bad news, of course, is that theContinue reading “I Assure You, This Website Is Fully Operational”
A hectic day, a glorious day! First and foremost, it’s #PitMad time, babyyyy. I’m madly participating, still seeking an agent for my debut novel Capitalist Bacon.

While preparing forContinue reading “Busy Busy Busy”

My excuse this time? Well, as of today, I’m one week into having COVID. To be clear, I and my family areContinue reading “Singing The COVID Blues”
Hey guys, happy Thursday! While there is plenty of promising progress to share, I already covered most of it in this month’s newsletter, and I don’t want to get repetitive. So instead, today I’d like to focus my blog post on someone else’s work. I was fortunate enough to come across Fictionspawn, a blog featuringContinue reading “Check out “Weeds” over at Fictionspawn”

Enjoy ‘The Battle of the Elfen Roost’, a holiday short just for you!
“But JJ,” you say. “We are all waiting on the second Poetic Narrative you said would come out in Fall 2020.” You check the calendar you keep with you at all times. “And Fall ended a few weeks ago!” Ok, ok, and I’m working on it–honestly! For a freebie, I still want it to beContinue reading “Who Wants A Free Short Story?”
