Biography
tjwell01

I'm California-bred writer/journalist based in Brooklyn, NY. For fun, I started a long-term creative writing project/novella for fun. It's 20k words deep and largely involves my relationship with my crazy dad and my post-college misadventures.

Topic: More Writing Communities, More Peers, More Exposure

Yeah, it's especially focused on YA/Teen Writers if that's what you're into.

Topic: A New InkPop
Posted: 20 Jun 2011 11:33

I just found out InkPop.com is back with a new look! I really love this site because real Harper Collins editors scan the submissions for possible books. How awesome would that be?

Any of you ever heard of it?

Okay, it's not brand new, but....

Just thought I'd pass along some thoughts...I think the options for writing communities aren't as vast and fruitful as I previously hypothesized when I first set out to experiment in them. In fact, there might be only 4 or 5 good sites worth publishing your work on. In all honesty, right? They also get blurred together, but I also noticed Harper Collins' InkPop.com is back online with a new look...if you didn't know, and it looks pretty cool.

I used to post work on their old site because I liked the fact that their editors actually want to publish the best work on the site--which is an amazing feature I think. Everyone talks about e-publishing and self-publishing but InkPop also does that. Also like that the site feels like a real forum that listens to concerns. We all know what it's like to live in packed yet quiet forum when it seems like no one is listening...this is my recurrent reality at least.

Regardless, I'll be checking out the new site again soon after I finish a big project of mine. With that said, I'm willing to give InkPop another shot just for a change of scenery.

Might as well take a chance on finding a better space for better feedback. Heard of any other cool new writing sites? I want to know!

PS. Saw this really cool success story on e-publishing at NYT:

Topic: Who do you write like?
Posted: 23 May 2011 10:08

It seems unfair to suggest I write like any of my favorites, but don't we all model after those we love? I guess I write like my dad and Chuck Klosterman, my two greatest influences.

Topic: Who ya' gonna call? Ghostwriters...:)

1) Who would pay for that?

2) Pretty arrogant and lazy task

Waiting for the Gun

Two minutes. Waiting. My heart is ready to burst. The lanes are naked, clean, ready to be torn up by cleats and sweat. Hundreds of eyes blinking and staring. Chatter swarmed into a calm storm underneath this dome. Waiting is the hardest part. The anticipation, building. Struggling to breathe as I strategize. Faster here. Ease up here. Go for the kill. Take...

Memory Lanes

Any day like today Yesterday or Tomorrow. A lonely long sidewalk. Music Contained inside black shells Against your head. The same steps you’ve walked Your entire life. Notes building, gentle. Gliding sounds stringing Your childhood from birth in a Rushing creek of experiences. A vision never seen before. One step, two step, three. Breathe more, here it comes. ...

No Control

My beginning: No control. Outside the window, the cold wind is howling and whipping back forth. Inside, deafening electronic music is pounding while dozens of drunken college kids slam their heads and blow their fists in the air. Steaming red lights beam into the room as half-drunk girls sip from their red cups and drift their eyes across the room, trying to latch on to something. Inside,...
