im-backIt’s been a LONG time since I’ve posted anything on this site… more than a year, in fact.  Almost all of my posts have been on my “Learning to Write” site at, and I’ve tried really hard to keep that site focused on the craft of writing.  But lately the political insanity the nation is going through has made it harder and harder for me to maintain a calm demeanor.  I continue to see too many others ranting on subjects about which I feel are too important to be decided in emotional tag lines and sound bites.  And if I remain quiet, I fear my silence will be taken as acquiescence or fear, and I refuse to let that happen.

So I’ve decided to resurrect this old site.  “Learning to Write” will remain appropriately focused on writing.  But if you want the “behind the scenes” look at what makes Jeff Brackett tick, this is the place.  I will talk openly and honestly about whatever topic flips my switch, and you will likely be invited to participate in my rants.  And if you’re used to easy-going, non-confrontational Jeff, I suggest you brace yourself.  This is where I let my hair down and speak my mind.

That’s all for now.

See you soon.
