Welcome to the new and improved J.P. Kurzitza website! Is it streamlined? Did it get a facelift? I like to think that it got both, though that probably sounds more like an oxymoron than anything. In this case, I think slimming down the website and making it less busy makes for an overall easier and more enjoyable experience. And after all, that’s all that matters, right?
Plus, it’s also an online store, too, which I am totally stoked about!
As far as the overall theme goes (monkeys typing), the image came to me rather quickly into my theme deliberations. We all know of the Infinite Monkey theorem—a monkey hammering random keys on a typewriter for any infinite amount of time will almost surely produce the complete works of Shakespeare, and though this is meant more as a mathematical metaphor, I couldn’t help but think of myself as an aspiring author and how it pertains to me.
The above metaphor may be super extreme, but every once and a while I can’t help but think that sometimes I’m a writer simply sitting at my desk blindly hitting the keyboard until a mega-bestseller shows up on the screen. That’s not to say that I’ve completely lost all faith in my stories, on the contrary, their awesome! Sometimes it is tough being that self-published, self-motivated writer toiling in anonymity until one of your stories finally resonates with the populous.
But I digress, and I sure-as-heck ain’t giving up!
So, enjoy the new look and feel of jpkurzitza.com, and, most of all, enjoy the new books.
I wrote them for you.
It's June, and that means that I'm this close to epublishing my first book. I can't wait! And it couldn't come any sooner.
The things you have to deal with when you're a budding writer, one of them being your brain hurts a lot and for an extended period of time (the last 3 years). Now all it wants to do is move on to my next book which I've been planning as I've been putting an end to my first one.
It's kind of a neat feeling, actually. My brain, knowing that I'm not in the creation mode of my first book anymore, has switched gears and begun to work out the details for my next book. It's like two parts of my brain are working simultaneously. One part is revising and editing, while the other is planning character arcs and plot lines for the next book.
I'm never at a loss for things to do nowadays which is such a blessing for me. I used to struggle to fill the void of time, but now writing has come to the rescue and I've never been busier or happier. :D
