Writing In Suburbia #5: Juggling Act!

Howdy!

In the fifth episode of Writing In Suburbia, I discuss the juggling act of figuring out what to write next. I discuss the problem of committing to projects too soon which could lead to missing prime opportunities that haven’t shown up yet. It’s not a Catch-22, not a Sophie’s Choice, it’s a juggling act!

I also talk about cleaning the kitchen. Because that place gets gross.

 

Oh, and hey, before you start listening, be sure and check out the $.99 deal on In Perpetuity!

Not to mention that today is the release of the ebook for Reign of Four: I!

 

Friday Night Drabble Party!

It’s time for a Party!

I know y’all missed the Drabble last week. Sorry, but things got all kinds of crazy as I was going over the final edits on Z-Burbia 6: Rocky Mountain Die. Stay tuned for the release announcement on that one.

But, since we are on the subject of missed Drabble Parties, I want to make sure y’all know that it is summer time which means there is usually a hiatus for the FNDP. While I won’t officially be pausing the drabbles this summer, just know that there could easily be gaps. Especially during July whilst I am on vacation for two weeks.

Just a little heads up, yo!

Now, how’s about some sweet, sweet, sweet micro-fiction?

Enjoy!

He Never Had
By
Jake Bible

He downshifted into second, but took the corner too fast. The tail end of the Mustang whipped out, a horn blared, he didn’t give a shit. He never had.

His foot slammed down on the accelerator as his right hand shifted back up into third. His left foot depressed the clutch then let it out again. Every movement of the dance happened in a breath’s time, simultaneous.

He glanced in the rearview mirror and saw the car behind him made the corner easily, barely a wobble or skid.

They said he couldn’t race Death, but fuck if he didn’t try.

Cheers!

Writing In Suburbia #4: Be Your Social Media Self

It’s another week which means there is another episode of Writing In Suburbia!

This week I jabber about social media and how much I really dislike the rules that have been forced on to people when it comes to what you can and cannot do as a writer. Or even as a person. I do my ramble rant thing.

I also talk a little about AntiBio 2 and why you need to leave a review if you’ve read it!

Check it out.

Writing In Suburbia #3: Hippie Dippy Mind/Body Sh*t

Hello!

Time for a new podcast episode of Writing In Suburbia! This episode is all about taking care of your body, as well as your mind, because pro writing is a marathon, people, not a sprint.

I also go off a little about how sick I am of bigots on Facebook. They suck.

Enjoy!

Writing In Suburbia #2: Death By Taxes!

Howdy, Y’all!

Time for another episode of Writing In Suburbia. This week’s episode is about the importance of paying attention to your taxes. Seriously.

Of course, I make the topic fun. No, I don’t. That’s a lie. Taxes are never fun. But they are important. Have a listen. It could save you some heartbreak and headaches.

Also, I mock John Green for being in Paris. Not really. Good for John Green being in Paris. I envy that bastard some days.

And, since this is about everyday life, I explain the importance of mowing my lawn. Good times.

Feel free to comment or send in questions via email or tweet. Word!

Enjoy!
