The Future of Jason Sisam’s Website.

What I've changed and what I'm changing in 2017.

When I began this adventure of blogging back in 2009, I had no idea where I wanted to go with it. I knew it would be fun, but I didn’t realize I could change people’s lives through my writing.

Last year, someone came up to me and told me they found something I had written. Now, this wasn’t something on my blog, but something I had given them in one of the bible studies I had led. Tears in her eyes, she said, “Jason, you have no idea what you wrote meant to me. I was having a rough day, and your words were just what I needed.”

For some bloggers, it’s difficult to categorize, or even tag. I know this is something that I’ve struggled with over the years. Maybe you’re saying with each post,  I don’t know what tag or category to place this post in. 

Writing is… NOW!

3 Reasons today is the day to begin writing your story!

As a writer, I often wonder what my life would be like if I were a character in someone’s novel? Would I be the gallant hero diving in to save the day and get the girl, or would I be the evil and sinister bad guy who wants to rule the world?

The funny thing is, as I’m writing, I often wonder what it would be like to be one of the characters I’m trying to create. Because, I know this will sound weird, in a sense they are real people. They have real hurts, real goals and real obstacles to overcome. I do what I can to help guide their lives, so that they make good choices. Yet, I have some characters that tell me they’re about to make a wrong choice.
