Thanksgiving has just wooshed by us and I have good news! Last week I was notified that several of my literary poetry works have been accepted for publication (although the details remain a bit hush hush at the moment).
In other news, be sure to check out my other blogs:
- Minimalist Reviews: Compact all-encompassing reviews from a storyteller’s perspective which examine structure, execution, technical and spectacle in a brief, efficient format.
- Story Science: Free writing blog that focuses on the technical craft of storytelling. We also offer professional script analysis services.
Revising my portfolio again, now that this crazy thing has become such a huge confusing mess. I’m going back to my minimalist ideals and making everything here at JGE as straightforward and inoffensive to the eye as possible — so if you see things start to change, don’t panic. It’s completely normal.
In other news, I recently submitted about 30 short works to lit mags around the country. I expect to receive at least one or two bites, but those of you familiar with the mystical world of literary magazines will know that my submissions have disappeared into a black hole nexus for the next four months or so.
In the meantime, be sure to check out my two ongoing blogs, Minimalist Reviews and Story Science, both of which post informative articles on a weekly (or sometimes bi-weekly) basis. Last week’s articles proved very popular: Minimalist Review of Argo, a film by Affleck and The Outrageous Justification Writing Exercise. This week’s articles are: Minimalist Review of Jiro Dreams of Sushi, a film by David Gelb and Violence and Story.
In this episode of shameless self-promotion, I want to bring to your attention my two main blogs: Minimalist Reviews and Story Science. I’m trying to push some traffic to my blogs so please have a click and see what they are all about.
Minimalist Reviews is a film and book review blog which discusses the storytelling techniques of each work in minimalist fashion. No 10-page reviews here.
Story Science is a consultation service (run by me) whose blog portion delivers unique articles on the craft of storytelling as well as twice monthly writing exercises.
Until next time, ciao!
