JCSwrites is a work in progress and will likely always be just that. I recently switched hosting sites due to rising costs and have yet to get back to where I was.
This started as a place to share fiction interests, talk about books or movies that caught my attention, good or bad and to talk about the writing process in general. It will still be that, however I have added an additional focus.
No matter the effort I put into steering away from social work, my interest-passion for social justice yearns to be free. So this site will also be that. A place to read, write, and discuss social justice issues. From one spark we can create a wildfire.
I only ever ask one thing if you decide to contribute. Please come with reasoned arguments and opinions. I do not have time for the nuh-uh, uh-huh, did to, did not grade-school banter that plagues unguided thought. Just because you said it, saw it, think it, or read it on Facebook does not make it true.
Let’s take a chance and get uncomfortable. Interesting things happen when we are uncomfortable.

This was the old me. Yes I was a social worker for the better part of a decade and had the opportunity to work with many people and walk along side them as they experience some of the greatest tragedies of their lives. I was also an EMT occassionally and tragedy exists there to.
Right now I am focusing on my writing projects, in particular my horror fiction. I like a good scare and am searching for the elusive perfect scare. Currently shock and startle pass for scary, but for me it is not the same. Scary should sneak into your subconscious and hide until you least expect it. It should shake you to your core. That is my goal. To make you…
…Fear where you live.
