Jamison’s Rules for Writing

By |2017-10-22T21:21:40+00:00September 7th, 2017|Disruption, J. B. Jamison, Writing Fiction|

Rule #1: Write good stories. Rule #2: Stop creating rules. Yep, that ought to cover it.   NOTE: Of course there are rules about editing and structure and grammar...things like that. But those are important AFTER I get the story out of my head and onto the paper. For me, I need to just ignore [...]

Tales of Terror: The Second Novel!

As I write this post, that audiobook has just been released on Amazon/Audible, audiobooks.com, and is soon to appear on iTunes and several other places. Between that last post and this one...wow...I've once again learned a lot. [...]

Ahhh, Editing…

By |2017-07-23T15:20:16+00:00July 23rd, 2017|Disruption, General, J. B. Jamison, Writing Fiction, Writing for Early Readers and Listeners|

While there may not be any real "secrets" that work for every author, I found one of mine this week. Like many other writers I hear from, especially those attempting to self-publish, doing the formal editing of the Disruption has been a real challenge. I did several initial edits myself, used a top-rated piece of [...]
