Michael Emerson and the Power of Voice

posted by Jason Boyett

A couple weeks back, with our 5-Sentence Scary Story Contest, we indirectly explored the power of voice when it comes to writing. As a writer, “voice” is important. I use it all the time, whether it’s in writing my Pocket […]

The Oddities of Expert-dom

posted by Jason Boyett

One of the fun and interesting things about publishing books like Pocket Guide to the Apocalypse and Pocket Guide to the Bible is that, once you write a book on a certain subject, people think you’re an expert on that […]

Obama on Faith and Doubt

posted by Jason Boyett

I’m sure you heard about President Obama’s commencement address at Notre Dame over the weekend. It was not without some controversy among pro-life groups at the Catholic university. He addressed the abortion issue by calling for a reduction in abortions, […]

Together, Let’s Make Kevin Bald

posted by Jason Boyett

My friend Kevin Hendricks is a fellow freelance writer whom I’ve known for several years. We’ve written for some of the same magazines, commented on each other’s blogs, and followed each other on Twitter for a long time. He’s a […]

This Week in Jason

posted by Jason Boyett

Good morning, Jason. Good morning. How are you? Fine. Thanks for asking. This is a weird way to start off a blog post. I agree, but you’re the one who just jumped right in and said “Good morning.” Not me. […]

posted by Jason Boyett

Congratulations to Ted Slater, the winner of yesterday’s Five-Sentence Scary Story Contest. Honorable Mention goes to Lauren Sawyer, who also had an excellent entry. To recap, I posted a photo of an unknown family standing in front of the world’s […]

Five-Sentence Scary Story Contest!

posted by Jason Boyett

Time for something fun: a story contest. The people below are not anyone I know. They are standing in front of a fairly popular roadside stop in the Midwest. Your job is to come up with a creative and frightening […]

Cool Writing Jobs: Subtitling

posted by Jason Boyett

You meet some interesting people on Twitter. One of them I’ve met recently is Nadine Bells, who lives in Canada and is a media subtitler — she’s one of the people who transcribes dialogue (and other stuff) on television shows […]

Friday Means Chipmunks! And Star Wars!

posted by Jason Boyett

You might think I rely too much on my friend Shuey to give me ideas for blog posts. You are probably right. But he doesn’t have a blog of his own — he should! — so he psuedo-blogs by living […]

10 Stats More Important than Swine Flu

posted by Jason Boyett

So as of yesterday, there were 1516 confirmed swine flu cases world-wide, 642 cases in the United States, and two deaths. (Both deaths were in Texas, and both victims also had “underlying health problems” in addition to the swine flu.) […]

Why Ladysmith Black Mambazo Is the Best

posted by Jason Boyett

Apropros of nothing, I would like to submit in this post three reasons why I really like Ladysmith Black Mambazo, the African choral group: 1. When I hear them I think of Paul Simon’s Graceland, which pretty much introduced LBM […]

The Trash Can: What I’ve Killed

posted by Jason Boyett

I’m not sure if this will work or not. But it seems interesting to me, and I’m hoping it’ll be interesting to you as well. In the process of writing a book, most writers end up writing far more than […]

The Story of Ehud, for Kids

posted by Jason Boyett

There’s a section in Pocket Guide to the Bible called “Seven Lesser-Known Bible Stories That Shouldn’t Be Told to Children.” I think of these stories every time our church hands out Bibles to 1st graders, and every time I see […]
