About Me

Jamell Crouthers is a poet, author, blogger and podcaster who has taken on a journey of writing in the prime of his life.

He is not the traditional author as he writes his books in poetry format with a focus on storylines and societal issues.

After publishing 14 books, his goals and plans are to continue writing books on taboo subjects that aren't discussed enough in today's world and bringing those main subjects to the forefront. Jamell's blogs tackle societal issues, how he writes his books, his journey as an author and some motivational blogs that will get you to focus on your goals. His goal and moniker is, "to change the world, one book at a time."

Code Blue: An Oath to the Badge and Gun Series

The Code Blue Series somehow became something bigger than me. The best way to describe it is looking at the world now and what’s going on, ...

The #1 reason why I'll always have goals...I can never be complacent. If you haven't read my previous blog about me wanting to publish 20 books by the end of 2020, you should back track and read it. That's a big goal for me and by the end of this year, I will have published seven. In 2018 and 2019, I plan on publishing 5 books each year. By the end of 2019, that'll be 17 books which means that by the summer of 2020, I will have published 20 books.

Yes, that is unprecedented and very rarely is done but let's just say I always have content to share and to be written. Once, I accomplish a goal, I move on. There's no time for me to sit around and goof off. There's no time to celebrate and go out and have fun. There's people I need to reach, an audience to cater to, millions of people that don't even know I exist and that I write.

I'm competitive as hell and I want to win at this. I'm an athlete so those competitive juices kick in, in my mind and then I know I have to get to work. Taking days off is rare and when I do, it's never longer than 2 days. Even when I do that, I feel guilty for doing it and it's because I've been working at this for a while so it's weird to take time off.

I'll always have goals because there's always a new idea or concept for a book or a poem that I can write that'll resonate in someone's mind. My mind never stops chugging away like a well oiled machine. I don't think my mind will ever stop chugging away and if it did, I wouldn't know what to do.

Even though I strive for peace of mind, just maybe my mind needs to be a little chaotic sometimes in order for me to write the content that I do. Maybe your mind works like mine, and that's a great thing, keep plugging away.

You should always have goals and keep striving to get better at whatever you're good at. What you're passionate about should always be your motivation daily. Some days you're not going to have it, that's just part of who we are, but if you have goals to accomplish, you'll always keep going.
