Jobe’s September in Pictures

Proof of my living the writerly life (celebrate rejections!) and my writing group's schedule through the end of the year.

Journal Lost & Found, aka, the Commonplace Book

One of the staples of the writerly life is a penchant for blank books.

All three give far-future versions of earth, and there are disturbing similarities. Every future earth has divisions of people: people who are judged better or worse than … Continue reading Dystopian Futures (Turned Political Rant)
