About j.r. lambert

Reading, ‘Riting, and Rhythm

I have had a passion for reading since I was very young. I still remember the fateful trip to the library when I was a lad, and my dad recommended that I check out The Hobbit. I was captivated and hopelessly hooked. Tolkien masterfully opened two new worlds for me; that of Middle Earth, and the appreciation of the grand adventure that books could bring. I devoured books from then on, with fantasy and science fiction being the dark mistresses that competed for my attention.

It was in high school that I first thought of writing. I imagined that I could brandish the imagination that I had yet to fully tap into like a finely etched staff, ready to create magic. As time went on, I eventually went to college, and the will to read was beaten out of me, slowly, steadily, and unmercifully. I became a very accomplished writer of the essays required for the field of psychology as an undergraduate student, but the desire to read and write fiction suffered a coma. Years ago, I was able to pick up a book again, and I have now twice again fallen in love with the colorful realms that authors have graciously painted in black ink for my exploration. So too have I picked up the pen once again.

I love speculative fiction, worlds that ask the question of “what if?” The worlds of speculative fiction may differ only slightly from our own, or may vary drastically from our own. I love the unrestricted creativity that is allowed when a writer is able to open up to their creativty, rather than feeling compelled to stick within the standard framework of a more specified genre.

Also Starring In…

I work in the mental health field, and I also am an instructor for a psychology program at a major university. I do think this adds a certain element of character insight into my writing.

I have five, yes FIVE, kids. I love them to pieces.  I have the most amazing wife who often sees herself as limited, but to me she is the most amazing person I know, and the best friend I could ever ask for. I love cooking, so I will certainly post some of my food related adventures to the website. We also own a home that we are trying to get into the shape we want it, which has been a slow, but steady process. Currently I am working on my home office, where I do my writing and school work.

      I have to sneak the time in. But that is true of just about everything in my life. It also helps that I can set up the blogs to post automatically at a scheduled time. That is a nice feature.

          When putting together the post, along the right hand side of the screen, there is a default that says Publish Immediately. There is an Edit button next to it that you can click on, and then select the day and time you wish to publish the post. Under Settings along the left hand side, you may want to check and make sure the blog is set to your local time. I did not do that at first, and had to figure out why my posts were posting at really wacky times. Good luck!
