The Ads Are Coming Back

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”

Exhaustion

Per both QueryTracker.net and Manuscript Wish List, I have exhausted all possible literary agents for Capitalist Bacon. Per myself, I’m also exhausted with the whole querying process. Which isn’t new, considering I took a several month break from it at one point. But seeing the bottom of a second database’s last page inspires a newContinue reading “Exhaustion”

Holy Crap, A Whole New Post

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”

I Assure You, This Website Is Fully Operational

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”

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”
