I tend toward genre fiction in both my short stories and my novel work. Primarily sci-fi and fantasy, although some other interesting themes occasionally surface.
My poetry is almost exclusively what I like to call “speed poems” meaning I’m not agonizing over a space or a comma. I’m dashing out a first draft as fast as possible with a goal of crystallizing a particular moment in time or a feeling. Then, if I look back at it at all, it will be to decide if it makes the cut or not. I’m not going to edit, I’m not going to polish. Maybe I’m wrong, but I feel like that sucks the life out of a poem. If it does make the cut, I save it and will eventually publish it.
I’ve also written quite a few essays under the general topic of Timeless Principles. Basically, these are musings on living a better, more fulfilling and more successful life through basic, time-honored, common sense principles for living. Although I’m a very religious person, I’ve tried hard NOT to make these essays religious in nature because I don’t feel this is the proper format for religious writing. But, you’ll probably recognize many of these principles as appearing in your holy book of choice. That’s not because they’re religious, per se, but because they work.
So, relax for a bit and read to your heart’s content. If you’re pleased, leave a friendly comment and I’ll get back to you to thank you for doing so. If you’re REALLY pleased, you’ll find an opportunity to support what I do by purchasing a poetry collection or an e-book at http://justinplambert.wordpress.com/book-store . Rest assured you have my sincere thanks just for making it this far.
