I often get that question about where the ideas come from for the things I write. Well, I've got a great example of how it works right now! I am not responding to a question in this post, but want to share something I stumbled across today that I plan to spend a lot more [...]

By |2019-04-18T22:43:21+00:00April 18th, 2019|Dibelief, Disruption, Distraction, General, I Can't Paint My Dog!, J. B. Jamison, Pops Jamison, The Skwerdlock, Uncategorized, Writing Fiction, Writing for Early Readers and Listeners|

Day 12 Using music to create the writing “trance”?

By |2019-04-18T14:12:12+00:00April 18th, 2019|Dibelief, Disruption, Distraction, I Can't Paint My Dog!, J. B. Jamison, Pops Jamison, The Skwerdlock, Writing Fiction, Writing for Early Readers and Listeners|

Question: What impact, if any, does music have on your writing? Do you listen to anything in particular while writing? What is your go-to jam or artist to get the juices flowing? Oh yeah! Gotta keep the juices flowing! For me, it completely depends on what I'm writing, what character is most central, how clearly [...]

Day 11 When you are not writing?

Question: What kinds of things do you when you are not writing? I guess I spend my non-writing time the way many other writers do...doing those fascinating things that come with being a part of such an exciting and fascinating lifestyle that comes with the role of being an "author". For example, this afternoon I [...]

Day 10 Why Write?

By |2019-04-15T23:45:11+00:00April 15th, 2019|Dibelief, Disruption, Distraction, General, I Can't Paint My Dog!, J. B. Jamison, Pops Jamison, The Skwerdlock, Writing Fiction, Writing for Early Readers and Listeners|

Question: I've always wanted to write a book, but when I go to a bookstore and see all of the books that are already out there, I just wonder how I could ever compete with all of those and give up. How do you get yourself to keep writing? I did a book signing in [...]

Day 9 Most Memorable Promotion?

By |2019-04-15T00:02:19+00:00April 14th, 2019|Dibelief, Disruption, Distraction, General, J. B. Jamison, Writing Fiction|

Question: Since you've been going out and doing things to promote your books, what has been the most interesting or memorable experience you have had doing that promotion? This one is easy, unfortunately. And, it gives a great example of just how dumb I can be sometimes when my mind is just focused on my [...]

Day 8 I Think I Found A Mistake!

By |2019-04-14T00:06:53+00:00April 14th, 2019|Dibelief, Disruption, Distraction, J. B. Jamison, Writing Fiction|

Question: I just finished reading the new book, Disbelief, and I think I found something that just would not happen. I don't really believe <Character A> would have let <Character B> know what was going on like he did. Don't you agree that was a mistake to write that part? First of all, for those [...]

Day 7 Writing in other genres?

By |2019-04-12T21:51:25+00:00April 12th, 2019|Dibelief, Disruption, Distraction, General, I Can't Paint My Dog!, J. B. Jamison, Pops Jamison, The Skwerdlock, Writing Fiction, Writing for Early Readers and Listeners|

Question: I see that you write children's books, suspense/thriller novels, and have written faith-based books and educational things as well.  Are there other genres you would like to write in sometime? Before writing this I took a quick look at my "Big Writing List", the list I keep with all of the ideas I would [...]

By |2019-04-11T23:34:51+00:00April 11th, 2019|Dibelief, Disruption, Distraction, General, I Can't Paint My Dog!, J. B. Jamison, Pops Jamison, The Skwerdlock, Writing Fiction, Writing for Early Readers and Listeners|

Question: If you could have dinner with two authors (dead or alive), who would they be, and what would you hope to learn from them? My knee-jerk response to this question is to always think of James Thurber just because I really enjoy his stories. But, I understand that, personally, he wasn't always the nicest [...]

Day 5 Just what is the Skwerdlock?

By |2019-04-10T16:06:58+00:00April 9th, 2019|General, I Can't Paint My Dog!, Pops Jamison, The Skwerdlock, Writing for Early Readers and Listeners|

Question: Ok, just what IS the Skwerdlock? From the Pops Jamison dictionary: 1) The Skwerdlock is a character in my book series for early readers and listeners. 2) The Skwerdlock is a character that came from a song I sang to my then one-year-old daughter as we sat in a rocking chair at 2am one [...]
