  • 02/07/13--12:51: Why read?
  • Recently, a friend asked me this — “why do you like to read?” Of course, my first thought was “why not?” But then I got to thinking a little. Why is it that we (or at least some of us) feel compelled to read and enjoy it? My second thought in response to my friend’s [...]

  • 02/14/13--09:07: Why I write
  • Why do I write? Why must I write? I’ve been pondering these questions lately. Why is it that I’ve been able to just jump in and do it at this point when I couldn’t before? For me, personally, it was a distinct void of satisfaction that caused my writing to really take off. I’ve always [...]

  • 02/23/13--15:48: The idea behind writing
  • Why do people write books? OK, now, I know it might sound like I’ve already answered this question when I talked about why I am compelled to write, but it really is a completely different (and intriguing) question. A book begins, purely, as an idea. It originates in the author’s mind, started as a speck here and a [...]

    One of the most important aspects of writing is being able to set a scene, create an interaction, simulate a dialogue realistic enough that your reader can connect, emotionally, with what’s going on. I know I wouldn’t read a book that didn’t make sense from an interactional standpoint because, quite frankly, if I don’t believe the [...]

    This is the beginning of my first novel, which I have been working on since December – please read it, tell me what you think and, (maybe, just maybe) if you like it, share it. What did you like? What didn’t you like? Would you keep reading? JACKSON BROWN (working title) A novel by Jabril Faraj, Draft [...]

    Two nights ago I was at a memorial service for the mother (let’s call her Jill) of a family that has been very close to mine over the years. They have a large family — six kids, one of whom passed away only six years ago last month. This family, a great family, a loving [...]

    We walk through the world each day. We see things happen, we see people act, we see the effects of the emotional world around us. But what really happened? Why did you get that look from the stranger you passed on the street? Why is your friend acting differently today? “Why?” is the real question. “Why?” [...]

    Today, I’m inspired. I’m so inspired I can’t write fast enough. I’m bursting at the seams with hope, I’m filled to the brim with excitement, my veins are coursing with enthusiasm. Why, you ask? This last Sunday was the end of Milwaukee’s second Young Professional Week, a week-long of twenty-two different events with a message [...]

  • 05/19/13--11:38: The Moment
  • I’m glad to be able to share with you something more than a blog post today. I often have flashes of stories in my mind – usually, simply a situation or a moment in time – or what some people would call “flash fiction” or “short fiction”. In the last few weeks I’ve been able to explore that […]

  • 06/10/13--16:03: Portrait of a Family
  • This is a short piece I wrote for my friend Berni Xiong and her project Letters to He, which she launched in order to raise awareness for Parent Alienation by spreading personal stories of those affected by family strife. The piece was previously published on her site. —————————————————————————————————————————— “Okay, class; time to pull out your drawing […]

    So you want to write, huh? Alright. Now that we have that settled, where do you start? It’s, honestly, quite a difficult question to answer – and one that almost everyone will have a different answer to. But, first, you need to ask “why?”, “why do I want to write?” Whether you’re writing simply for pleasure, […]

  • 08/21/13--06:36: Write to Change the World
  • One of the things I have found to be true is that many people have a limited scope of experience with the world — more aptly, the many different “worlds” that exist within our society. Now, in no way do I claim to have experienced everything the world has to offer; far from it. However, […]

  • 12/27/13--07:32: I Did #NaNoWriMo
  • Hey, there! I know, I know – it’s been a while. I’m sorry. And, yes… I’m still writing. In case you were wondering, that’s the Twitter hashtag abbreviation for National Novel Writing Month. This writing challenge takes place in November and the goal is 50,000 words over the course of the month. I started with big […]

    I saw someone say recently that “Goals are nothing but dreams with deadlines.” That resonated with me. So often, we put things off until tomorrow – paying bills, making that phone call, doing that thing that needs to be done – and constantly avoid committing or fail to put ourselves out there for fear of […]

    Do you subscribe to Netflix? If so, you are one of the more-than-50-million people who do. I have the service, myself, and love it. I prefer to consume television shows (content) from beginning to end and Netflix allows you to do this better than anyone before. Oh, and It’s also only, what, $9 a month? Basically, […]
