Community is a very important aspect of becoming successful as an independent author. I would be nowhere without the help and camaraderie of these wonderful fellow Indies sloshing through the writing trenches. Please take the time to visit their work.

I am an author.

I never thought I’d be able to say those words. During my sophomore year high school English class, my teacher told me that the story I had written was so bad that I should consider never writing creatively again. I didn’t for a while. About the same time, I picked up blogging. I had my own Xanga, which was devoted to top ten lists. Said site has been lost to the annals of space and time.

Five years later, I was struggling to adjust to life after college. I’d finished undergrad work quicker than my peers, meaning I was back living with my grandparents. I was working a job with long hours and poor pay. My love life was going nowhere. I didn’t have a ton to complain about, but I felt like a failure. I went to two therapy appointments. After finding out how much the first one cost, I kept my second appointment, just to tell the therapist I couldn’t afford to keep coming, but I was hoping she had some suggestions for me to help myself, at least until I could afford to start therapy again.

She suggested I started writing. So I did. That was January 2009.

I’ve blogged once a week on various sites pretty much non-stop since then. Some times I’ve done more1, other times have been a bit more barren2. But I’ve kept writing. What started as a mental release for me has turned into something more. It may not be the best blog in the world, but it’s my space, wherever that may be. I’m happy you’ve chosen to share it with me.

I’m Tim. I’ve been running That Tiny Website since 2013. Before that, I’ve blogged various places, ranging from that Xanga when I was 16 years old (2004ish), to a pair of college sports blogs, to other personal blogs I’ve had.

As I said, I’m an author. If you want to read more about my first book, An Epilogue to Innocence, there’s a whole page devoted to it. If you’re interested in any of the professional editing services I provide, there’s a page for that too. If you’re just here to read, hi. Feel free to hop in the comments and chat.

Writing has been my escape from the world for almost a decade now. It’s allowed me to meet great people who have great stories to tell. Here’s to hoping in your time on this site that we can tell great stories to each other.

Writer and linguist. Overworked Undergrad, soon-to-be overworked Graduate student. Creator of the slavo-germanic Conlang Nemsk.  All Hail the Trash King. Free the Bird Feet.

Now that we have the jokes out of the way, a bit more about me as a writer:

I love the technology, hard sciences, and aesthetics of science fiction, but my primary focus is on the soft sciences. I want my stories to be people stories at their core, but also to be compelling and fun to read. Hopefully, I'm not that far off the mark.

It is said that two heads are better than one. Most likely, there are times when two heads would be more of a nuisance than a blessing, especially if they were attached to one body. In fact, it doesn’t seem like anything at all would get accomplished if two heads were trying to control one body. That would probably result in a lot of fighting and aggravation, and little or no writing.

Luckily, though, we are two heads with two separate bodies, joined only by our ideas. In our case, that combination works beautifully.

We are Jacob Crawford, the mother-daughter dynamic-duo writing team consisting of E.V. Jacob and P.E. Crawford, two delightfully odd writers who enjoy, in no particular order, tea, talking, and writing.

When we combine these passions, the result is typically a lengthy conversation that goes well into the night, and a slew of story ideas that can’t be contained.

And so, this site was born, to house these many ideas and share them with the rest of the world. We hope that you’ll enjoy our random tales, and we look forward to seeing you around here more often!

Thanks for visiting!
