My Recurring Sunday Project

Really happy with the way this episode came out! Come join me as I ruminate on making do with the time we have and the adjustments I am hoping to make to my schedule. It’s all about staying creative! Shoutout to my pal Dust Jones for his mic contribution to the show! -J. Alejandro

Revamped Creative Drive kicks off in 2019!

My 2019 days have been filled with upward stumbles in the creative department and good cheer. I hope the rest of the year follows this trend! I had the pleasure of revamping my tentative podcast experiment known as Creative Drive into a proper podcast production with the help of my awesome wife, Maddie! It’s so…

Everything changes. And that’s ok.

Momentum swells and recedes at a moment’s notice. So much has changed in the last month that I’ve had to recalibrate my commitment to the blog and the Idlewind collective endeavors. Today I started a full time position working as an office assistant– It’s a really wonderful thing for my family and I, and you…

I sort of blinked and realized The Addendum Podcast is ten episodes in. The first five episodes are absolute garbage, but the more recent ones clearly sound like me getting my act together!

In my haste to lay the groundwork for the podcast as the year comes to an end, I have been recording tests to see if it would be possible to do a video podcast version of Talking Text simultaneously. Video has been a big part of my life, and since I was an actor in…

Talking Text: Podcast Update

It was my goal this year to start a podcast for writers. It would be easy to say it hasn’t happened because of work, family, procrastination, etc. There’s no excuse. I am sorry to say it has not happened because of my inability to time manage. I acknowledge this and now that it’s out there…
