Who Is Your Blogger, And What Does He Do?
We’ll start at the beginning:
Okay, maybe we don’t have to go that far back. Let’s start with some basics instead.
My name is Jonathan Ondrashek. I was born and raised on a farm in Iowa, and have since been converted into a city slicker who yearns for the sharp, distinct smell of cow shit. From an early age, I loved reading, which naturally segued into a love of writing. However, my epiphany to pursue professional writing avenues didn’t occur until after I forsook a college education for pot, alcohol, and self-indulgent masturbation.
At the age of 23–after realizing I had absolutely no clue what I wanted out of life–I rediscovered writing and joined the Long Ridge Writer’s Group. Through snail-mail correspondence, I learned the basics of breaking into print markets and crafting novels. In 2013, despite many rejections, I finally
suckered a publisher into sending me a contract landed a three-book deal with a prominent horror publisher.
After years of self-loathing, I had looked defeat in the face and bitch-slapped the shit out of her.
Which brings me to the point: I’m a writer. It’s been my calling since birth, even if I couldn’t see it for a decade. This is my dream, and I refuse to let anything or anyone stand in my way.
I’m not out to concoct the Great American Novel, and I may not end up being a household name. I’m okay with that. Really, I am.
My goal is to entertain. Plain and simple.
Dark Randomosity will feature random topics with a dark sense of humor. While many posts will pertain to writing, here’s a glimpse at what else to expect:
- Book updates, contest announcements, and guest blog information (assuming some unlucky bastards out there are willing to have me write for their site);
- Guest blog posts (assuming other bloggers want to be associated with this site);
- Original poetry;
- Links to spend your hard-earned money on poorly crafted novels;
- and pictures. You can’t go wrong with pictures.
Why You Should Come Back
Why should you invest ten to twenty minutes a week in reading Dark Randomosity? Why read anything where the writer has no clear authority on anything and bounces around from one topic to another?
Well, it’s because I aim to entertain. And, as it is with herpes, I want you to come back again and again.
So stay tuned. There’s more randomosity coming your way.
