Announcing Alice Won?

So it’s official. Alice Zero is nominated for an Elgin Award in the Chapbook Category. Really stoked to see that my writing got noticed. It’s not that I’m not proud of my podcast. I am. But I started doing this to write. And this was a really cool thing to see my poetry respected. IContinue reading “Announcing Alice Won?”

Shameless Self Promotion

I got some things I’ve hinted at, but as usual, there comes a point where you want to have more to accomplish. And I thought about writing this because people struggle with the concept of sales, and the perspective of talking about yourself always seems hollow. I’ve talked about this many times on my podcastContinue reading “Shameless Self Promotion”

What You Do Matters

Most of us don’t believe that title. There are seven billion people on this planet, coming close to eight. We’re a tiny piece to an unfathomable tapestry. What does that one little thing do? What can it in the face of such vastness? I’m going to flip the coin on this one. There are twoContinue reading “What You Do Matters”

Staying Proud In 2021

This took a little longer than I thought to get to writing in the blog again. I want to apologize in advance. The show has been a crazy monster of a ride since it started. If I had one regret about 2020, it’s that I didn’t pick up on this niche faster. In its goodContinue reading “Staying Proud In 2021”

Eight Things I did I’m Proud Of

I did so much in 2020. The things I’m proud of could be a list three times as long as Eight. I tried to be who I wanted to be. And I did some incredible things. So here are the Eight things I’m most proud of. Ready? My First Audiobook Release Even though I don’tContinue reading “Eight Things I did I’m Proud Of”

It’s What You Make of It – My 2020

I have a couple of caveats I need to get off my chest before I finish this. The first is that this wasn’t my first apocalypse. I have plenty of experience with dealing with my own armageddons, and 2020…well…but I digress. The other caveat was that I already had made plans to go through myContinue reading “It’s What You Make of It – My 2020”

Do What You Love

So today is the day ladies and gentleman. The Just Joshing Talk Show begins. As stated on tonight’s podcast, the new format begins after tonight. Take a listen to episode 450 if you want to hear me talk about all the specifics of the new format, just listen to it. I wanted to take thisContinue reading “Do What You Love”

Just Joshing – The Show Begins

So a lot has happened since I wrote Under Your Nose… I still can’t believe I talked to Chuck Pineau about Canadian towns and metal for about an hour. Unreal conversation, but so much fun. I’ve done other videos as well, but the whole thing is getting this new formula down. Transferring the podcast toContinue reading “Just Joshing – The Show Begins”

Zippy The Dragon

So I was interviewed today, and my interviewer, correctly pointed something out about me. I tend to look at the things that terrify me, and think about how to do them, and I must confess, drawing terrifies me. Not Good Enough I have lousy hand co ordination. My chicken scratch of writing made me notContinue reading “Zippy The Dragon”

Kindness Is Rebellion

So I’ve been sending out random notes of kindness to random (and not so random) people. People I believe could use it and see it and enjoy it. Here’s a sample of one. What do you offer that no one else has? You. There is only one and only will ever be one. Your thoughtsContinue reading “Kindness Is Rebellion”
