Edits, Re-drafts, and Re-writes.

These are a few of my (least) favorite things. I will say, I hate them significantly less than I used to. I would be surprised to ever find a writer that actually enjoys this part of the process more than the initial writing/creating stage–although I’m quite certain said writer exists, somewhere–but it remains arguably anContinue reading “Edits, Re-drafts, and Re-writes.”

Delays and Other Such Annoyances

Let’s play an old but fun game, shall we? Two truths and a lie: 1.) Winter officially ended March 20th. 2.) The Third Poetic Narrative was scheduled to be released ‘Winter 2020’. 3.) The Third Poetic Narrative indeed was released on that schedule. Did you guess the lie? (If you didn’t, I mean… come on.)Continue reading “Delays and Other Such Annoyances”

Oh, It’s Thursday

Hi everyone, hope as always y’all are safe and well. First thing’s first: yup, the third Poetic Narrative is delayed. Drink. In my defense, I’ve been busy on other stuff. Including writing stuff! Got a hold request on one of my shorts for a top-tier mag, so that’s exciting. Still firing out the queries forContinue reading “Oh, It’s Thursday”

Busy Busy Busy

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. If you’re on Twitter, look me up @JJSegwis and give my pitches a RT, why don’t you? Gotta work the uber-mysterious and all-powerful algorithms, after all. While preparing forContinue reading “Busy Busy Busy”

Singing The COVID Blues

Well, last week I promised some updates on my personal writing front. Unfortunately, I don’t actually have that to share. Fortunately you guys, much like my parents, are used to me disappointing you. 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”

Check out “Weeds” over at Fictionspawn

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”

Can We Get Back to Writing? Please?

My last few blog posts have drifted quite a bit from my original intention of writing, in essence, a journal detailing my attempts to become a professional author. (For me to later look back on in humiliation.) Maybe it’s because yesterday Joe Biden was indeed inaugurated, and there was no violence or other major disruptions,Continue reading “Can We Get Back to Writing? Please?”

Well, That Was Fucking… Interesting.

(Note: this was first written January 6th, 9pm EST. I later edited it this morning to clarify any fits of passion. I’m pissed.) I was going to write a blog today about how one of my New Year’s Resolutions (aside from losing my COVID 10… ok, 16 pounds) was to get back on schedule. WritingContinue reading “Well, That Was Fucking… Interesting.”

Happy Holidays!

Just a quick hello to you all. Whether you’re preparing for Christmas Eve, waiting for Kwanzaa, still fat off of latkes from Chanukkah, or in any other way celebrating, I hope your holidays are warm, bright, and safe. 2020 has been an… unfortunate episode for all of us. I know many are having to suspendContinue reading “Happy Holidays!”
