Mike J's faction blog

Laugh my laugh but read me seriously. Writing is easy but getting any acceptance for and by readers is difficult. Creative writing starts for all of us at school. My first long poems were written as a late teenager, probing both beliefs and uncertainties. Novels and personal commentaries followed during my middle age. While the main source may appear to be myself, my pen and my computer, the real source is other people's personal experiences. The world is sufficiently fascinating and relevant that pure fiction becomes a civilised sideline to non-fictional portrayals from our real experiences. All of you can assist me with your own recalls of perceptive but quirky incidents. These can be emailed to me at

Thank you - Mike Jones.
