Welcome and thanks for stopping by.
This is the official website of the writer Josh Gauthier (who is me). If you want to know more about me, simply click the “About Me” tab at the top of the page.
Elsewhere on this site, you can find:
- a few pieces of creative work,
- an index of my current publications,
- book/comic reviews
- blog posts in which I discuss writing, culture, and life.
In all of this, there’s that annoying voice in the back of my mind that asks “Do you really think you have anything to say that hasn’t already been said? And said better?”
But when that voice comes knocking, I remind myself of the fact that discussions like what I plan to do here have helped me in the past. I am not the only one who has moments where I struggle to put a sentence together. I am not the only one that feels like an imposter sometimes. Through success and difficulty, we’re facing a lot of the same things.
So this is simply a glimpse into my thoughts – things I’ve read and enjoyed (or not), my experiences and thoughts as a writer, my sometimes-struggles as a human. Maybe you can relate. Maybe something I say here can inspire you or reassure you; I hope it does. Maybe you’ll just be entertained. I’d be happy with that.
One of my favorite things about being a writer (other than how fun it is sometimes) is the community I’ve found. I hope this blog, in part, is my way of contributing a little to that community.
That’s about it. Thanks for reading.
