Lists for 2020 Part 1

I keep getting 7 books that impact me, and 10 albums I love from facebook friends. So now that I’m in Vancouver, I thought I’d open with my lists of Josh this year. I’ll talk about them in Part 2, but I thought I’d touch on my goals for this year in my writing andContinue reading “Lists for 2020 Part 1”

The Journey – Just Joshing 300

There’s a little spoiler about Just Joshing 300 I have to say. I have two amazing conversations with Calvin Jim and Jessica Renwick live at When Words Collide. I like talking to Calvin, and I’m looking forward to a full conversation with Jessica down the road. But what makes me really excited about this, isContinue reading “The Journey – Just Joshing 300”

How I Developed my Interview Style

If you listen to my podcast with any regularity, you will find that my interviews are often conversations more so than question and answer type deals. There are reasons for that. I thought today because I don’t do craft too much on my blog, that I’d give an insight with how I approach interviews andContinue reading “How I Developed my Interview Style”

This has been a busy time. First thing’s first, my latest column at First Comics News is live. In it, I talk about a comic series I really enjoyed last year called Portalbound. You can read about it here. Once you’re done, come back. I’ll be waiting. Welcome back. Since I’ve been doing my partContinue reading “Sponsored By…”

Pipedreams, Integrity and Reality – All In Conclusion

So I’ve listed my writing goals and podcast goals with Betting on Me Parts 1 and 2 and All In Parts 1 and 2. So what’s left to talk about? The pipedreams and the big stuff. I really hate the word real. Real is a frustrating word. It doesn’t really mean anything. To quote oneContinue reading “Pipedreams, Integrity and Reality – All In Conclusion”

Betting On… Part 2: Just Joshing Podcast – Now and Tomorrow

I guess I can’t deny that Just Joshing has done well. It was started much like everything else I do in my career, by accident.  Robert J. Sawyer was going to be interviewed for this blog like everyone that came before it, until he mouthed the word podcast.  I hadn’t thought of a podcast.  TheContinue reading “Betting On… Part 2: Just Joshing Podcast – Now and Tomorrow”

Betting On…

I don’t know if reading this, you are stuck on going for it, you need to. At some point, you can’t stay safe. You have to leap. And it’s okay to fail. I know I still have long days ahead on the day job. Even going part time, there will be moments I’ll have to work more. I may have a week here or a month there, but it’s going to be less.

Two Voices

One of my biggest frustrations with people is that they are unwilling to act. I’m being brutal and critical here, and a little bit hypocritical.  Nonetheless, it is very frustrating for me to witness people not act on what they should be doing. I know, I know, it sounds judgmental as all hell.  What isContinue reading “Two Voices”

A Magical Weekend

It’s been a crazy weekend.  Almost a perfect one.  My vacation had been great because of catching up with friends and family throughout a very crazy travel schedule. I found myself heading back to Vancouver for V Con.  I was looking forward to checking out the Auroras, hoping that I’d win, but also cool ifContinue reading “A Magical Weekend”
