Jacqui Jacoby’s Friends By Choice

Friends by Choice.  Writers by Committal.             I look at the clock now and wonder how it all went by so fast.  It was spring of 1996 when I answered an on American Online—then the premier internet service–and met up with two writers who would define the concept of “writing partners.” […]

Safekeeping

I was sixteen when I was introduced to “self-defense” and began a lifelong road that has kept me safe. I took class after class through college and private organizations. Eventually I escalated into martial arts. I never got my black belt due to health reasons, but really, please don’t sneak up on me. There was […]

It was all about sales and presence. And that is not what I wanted. I didn’t want an “event”. I wanted a celebration […]

WRITING/SUBMITTING/HOPING

The letters started coming across the internet.  Someone in one of my writer’s loops was depressed.  After almost a year of waiting to hear back from an editor who had her manuscript, she received the package in the mail with a form letter rejection.  “But I spoke to her,” this writer said.  “She said I had […]

Lessons from the Giants

I started writing when my son was eleven months old. He graduates from Junior High this coming May. I wrote my first book in under a year, at least I count it as my first book, because the other two before it weren’t fit to be coasters for the coffee table. So I wrote this […]
