J.A. Taylor’s Writing on Writing

An index of my writing about the craft

For some ridiculous reason, I convinced myself I could write a book. I did. It sucked. It took me a while to learn that, but I did. After a few years, it sucked much less. Here’s some of the stuff I learned through that miserable process.

Jim tries to make all his stories taste like tacos or burritos, except for micro-fiction. Micro-fiction tastes more like chips and salsa.

If you’ve enjoyed any stories you’ve found here, perhaps you should join J.A. Taylor’s Monthly Reader’s Club and read all his stories free?
