200 Followers + Q/A Announcement!

Lovely ladies! Classy gents! Something RIDICULOUS has happened!

200 people across the globe tripped and hit their heads upon their keyboards, resulting in 200 subscribes to this blog. If you have sustained this injury and are receiving this post in your inbox or WordPress reader, I wish you a speedy recovery. Put some ice on it.

To all who have subscribed to this blog, thank you. Thank you for supporting me through everything. Thank you for your kind words, your advice, your comments. Thank you for sharing your love for writing and creativity with me. I don’t take a single one of you 200 for granted. I didn’t expect to reach this point, but it’s a cool place to be, and I cherish it immensely.

When I hit 100 followers, I did something special to commemorate it. Many of you may remember that I held a Q and A session in which I answered a bunch of your questions about me, my blog, my writing, and other nonsense in video form! I had a blast making the video, and, if the comments on that post are anything to go by, most everybody enjoyed watching it! I’d love to do another!

So, if you have any questions for me regarding myself, my blog, my writing, my likes, my dislikes, my thoughts, my attractive personality, etc., please leave them in the comments below. Serious or not, it doesn’t matter! I’ll answer em all! On camera! I may even don a suit!

My top 5 favorite posts since my last 100 follows are as follows. If you happened to miss any of them, I’d recommend checking them out, because I think they suck the least out of all of my posts!

Violence and Gore in Writing: Is There a Limit? – This post prompted me to look to literature in an effort to answer the grand question posed. The post generated a wealth of discussion in the comments section, which is why I consider the post to be such a success.

A Missed Deadline, a Hard Look – This was a difficult post to write, as I wrote it in light of the fact that I failed to reach my self-imposed deadline for the first draft of my novel in the works. In the post, I propose a game plan to help tackle the draft.

Writers, Trust Your Readers – This is a good ol’ writing post. I dig discussing writing and storytelling (that’s what my blog’s about!), so this one was a blast. +10 for Lost gifs.

Writing the Five Senses: Sight – I enjoyed writing all of the five senses posts, but this one stands out to me because I wrote it with such confidence. I really felt that I touched upon significant points.

Novel Excerpt #2, Campfires at Midnight – I’m proud of this short passage from my novel in the works. It seems to have been well-received thus far, which is cool to see!

Once again, thank you for being a part of this exciting journey.

Here’s to the next 100!

As always, stay classy.

  1. Jazz

    Congrats, J.J! A well deserved 200 followers! I actually have a few questions to suggest.

    1. If you were to write another book, (in the fantasy genre) what would it be about?

    2. If you were given the opportunity to have a job of writing and publishing books, would you take it or focus on something else?

    3. What is your intake on the show Avatar the Last Airbender? I personally LOVE it! 😉

    4. Do you have the new video game Injustice 2? If so, how do you feel about it and who are your top 3 characters so far? I think it is a great and well-put game! The graphics are amazing and the characters are all so different and fun to learn about. I want to hear what you think about the game. 🙂

    5. Finally, do you prefer sweet or salty food?

    Good luck with your video and I hope that you answer some of my questions! Thanks J.J! Can’t wait for the next 100…you will reach there in no time!

    Amazing, J.J.! Happy for you. I happen to have a question – you have watched the TV show “24”, correct? If so, who is your favorite and/or least favorite character and why? I’d love to hear from you!

    Ooh, 200 followers! That’s quite a crowd. Congrats! 🙂

    Here are my uestions:
    1) What about your real life personality would surprise your internet friends?

    2) If you ruled the world, what would be the first thing you’d do?

    3) What’s your favourite type of plague?

    1. A.S., unsurprisingly, this is a diverse bunch of thought-provoking questions. I appreciate you taking the time to ask them and am delighted that you stand out among the 200. You’re a favorite blogger of mine for sure 😀

  4. Congratulations J.J.!😊🍻🎇🎉 And while I personally may be a klutz, I didn’t accidentally fall and hit my head on the keyboard. I followed you because you’re posts are funny, witty, entertaining, and helpful! Okay, I’ve got a wicked migraine right now so I’m having a hard time coming up with questions, but here’s one: Who is your favorite standup comedian?

  5. Congrats on 200 followers! I am so excited for you! I thought of some questions for you. What do you do to refocus when you have trouble writing? Or, if that never happens to you because you’re such a focused guy, give the rest of us a tip! What do you like to eat or drink while writing? Is it coffee? Tea? Skittles? What gives you all the great energy? Do you listen to music while you write? What kind? Ok, and last question for fun . . . if you could fly anywhere in the world but just for dinner, where would go? Congrats again!

  7. Congrats my friend, if anyone deserves this achievement, it’s you. My questions are
    Are you a big fan of the horror genre( in terms of movies that is?)
    If so, which woman in horror kicks the most ass in your opinion?
    Who was your first celebrity crush?
    Who is your favourite actress?

    I look forward to that video Q&A.

  8. Ooh massive congratulations!!! So well deserved 😀 And I’m really looking forward to your Q&A video- the last one was so good!! *Wracking my brain for good questions* okay… What villain would you least like to meet on a dark and scary night? What’s the coolest film you’ve ever seen? And if there was a zombie apocalypse, what tinned food would you most like to have to eat (until you ran out of food of course)? (You thought that last one might have been slightly more dramatic, didn’t you? 😉 )


    1. Thank you so much for your congratulations and your questions! You’ve been here since the beginning :’). I’m so glad you enjoyed the first one. Those are some quality questions I look forward to tackling!

  10. Congratulations, JJ! Well deserved. You have a talent for blogging and a special way with people in the blogosphere.

    (1) If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
    (2) If you could make a good living as an author, would you write full time or prefer another career?
    (3) If we became United Earth and you were our leader, what’s the first thing you’d fix/address?
    (4) What do you believe defines humanity as a species?

    I love all your articles and have read the ones you listed.
