Addison L. Jones Addison L. Jones's blog:
Last week’s post, all about how lonely I’ve been feeling as I take part in this year’s National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) got me to wondering: How much do I actually interact with my fellow human beings on a daily basis?

Now, first off, as anybody who reads my posts regularly already knows,... Read more of this blog post »

Right. I am rubbish at social media. This is not really news at all, but I thought I would start with it. I respond to every email I get, but I find social media just something I don't get.

One day, when I’m a multi-billionaire, I’m going to buy a massive plot of land out in the frigid wasteland of the northern Yukon and build a vast complex of unnecessarily poorly-designed buildings. There will be no roads that lead there. No utilities. No central heating. And insufficient staff to...

Down the street from my house there's this bizarre old concrete staircase in the middle of the woods. It leads up to a dirt trail between the trees and connects to another staircase. It's actually longer to take this shortcut than it is to just walk in the road, but who wants to walk in the middl... Read more of this blog post »

There are some modern poets, Billy Collins in the vanguard, who write what I call the poetry of nonchalance. Extremely modern, often humorous, prone to the quotidian, they make poetry writing look easy. I put George Bilgere’s work in the same church and pew as St. Billy of Collins’. I’m not sure...

Today I came across a verse that left me mute. I’d read it a thousand times, had seen it emblazoned on mugs and posters and all manner of faith-phernalia.


But it is another thing to paint it across my heart.


Today, there are things I would like to address in a friendship, ha...

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
