When Jacob Devlin was four years old, he would lounge around in Batman pajamas and make semi-autobiographical picture books about an adventurous python named Jake the Snake. Eventually, he traded his favorite blue crayon for a black pen, and he never put it down. When not reading or writing, Jacob loves geeking out at comic book conventions and blasting Italian pop rock music in his car. He does most of these things in southern Arizona.

I'm the kind of guy who finds a story in an abstract photo or a song. It also helps to stick my characters in the hot seat and "interview" them as if we were talking face to face. I do that a lot on my blog, not just to generate ideas but also because it's a lot of fun!(less)

Similarly, read, read, read! Cultivate things that inspire you, but don't wait for inspiration to come. Make lists of your favorite books, songs, TV characters, places, etc. Inspiration is everywhere. Don't wait for it. Create it. I also highly recommend falling into a good writing community or finding some honest, constructive critique partners with similar goals! If writing is in your heart, don't give it up.(less)

Coming out of my cave (and I’ve been doing just fine)

Y’all. Somehow I haven’t written to you on this blog in over six months. With every passing day, it didn’t feel like I had much new to say or anything special going on. Besides being at home to survive a global pandemic and explosive political turmoil and Zoom Brain and all those things. Someone threw an open bottle of Coke at my car the other day, so that was exciting. Also I got my vaccines. The

Braving the Wilderness by Brené Brown

Timely (and to think this was published BEFORE the pandemic and all the events of 2020) and engaging. Not perfect—it will cause some discomfort—but I appreciate the points that she ultimately arrives at.

One of Us Is Next by Karen M. McManus

Doesn’t quite have the same impact as the first, but I did like that twist in the last couple of pages. McManus does a great job laying out all the clues and building suspense for her readers.
