My name is Jamell Crouthers and I'm a poet and author. My blogs will consist of my journey as a writer, poet, and author. I plan on chronicling my journey from new projects to current things I'm working on and many other things. There will be blogs where I'm sharing my deepest thoughts on what I'm dealing with and going through as a writer and author. Each blog discusses what's going on at the present time of my writing journey. I hope everyone enjoys my blogs and my journey!

Get To Know Me As An Author
I know I haven't written a blog in a while, been working on a lot of different projects and also finalizing my next book for October 17th. A lot of you that read my blogs don't know me as a writer and how I do things so here's your chance. I did an author interview with a poetry book website so here's the link, I hope you enjoy reading it! In the meanwhile, I have 2 books on Amazon and other websites that you can read and buy along with my author profile page that's on my website.
Everyone wants to write a book. It's too bad a lot of you won't get it published...ever. Yes, that's right I said it and here's the reason why, you have too many distractions in your life. Let's just say I know someone and she has been writing a book for quite a while. This has been a process for nearly 2 years and I've published 7 books and she still hasn't published the one she has been working on.
This is not to toot my own horn or brag or be this cocky, pompous jerk because I'm nowhere near that. If you met me in person, I'm personable, observant and quiet mostly. I let my writing do the talking in a nutshell. I know what I'm doing in regards to my goals. So back to the subject matter of wanting to write a book.
Too many people will go to an author and say they want to publish a book, how do I do it? My first question is, have you written a book. When the answer is no, there's not much else to talk about. If you've started it, I'…
When I began writing, I never really thought I was going to write as many books as I have. I surely didn't think I would have this many book ideas that would come to me. But with so many societal issues that are going on, I knew that I could write about characters that would resonate with others. Throughout my reviews, people have felt and emoted through reading about these different characters that I write about.
I choose not to share my reviews on my blogs because you can easily go to my Amazon page or Goodreads page and see them yourself, my goal isn't to be boastful about my reviews that I receive from people.
The Struggles and Growth of a Man
Robert was created out of people that I know and have experienced things living in a bad neighborhood and going through struggles in their lives. Some of his experiences emotionally are things that I've felt and gone through. A lot of the other things I write about were experiences friends have gone through and also seeing bad ne…
One thing about writers, whether you're an author, poet, blogger, screenwriter, your mind is always processing thoughts and ideas. To be honest, we very rarely take breaks (unless it's a necessity such as being burnt out, vacation, family or any other circumstances). For me, it's very hard to take breaks, or should I just say they don't last very long.
You would think that with my next three books that I'm publishing between now and the beginning of next year that I'd take a break from writing. Nope. Not. For. One. Second. I'm still writing and sharing content (feel free to follow me on instagram: www.instagram.com/aquarianmind). Currently I'm posting love poems on there that I've written a few months ago. It was a book but now I've decided to post those for free, it's a different avenue than what I normally write about which is societal issues.
A few weeks ago, I went to Los Angeles for a vacation but also to network and meet people in the …
