A guy in the Pen with a pen
“10 things to keep in mind when reaching the end of a prison sentence” wrapped up last week’s topic of the week (T.O.W- Will I make it or will I fail.)” Thanks to all of you for sticking it out with me. I know a lot of what was posted wasn’t the exciting stuff you might have preferred but I felt it was a week needed to explain just how serious my efforts are to succeed when my incarceration is over.
Since all of you were so well behaved on that trip, I shall now reward you with some ice cream in a sense.
How about a couple of great stories?!? Maybe even throw in a “top shelf” story sometime.
The top shelf stories will have to be purchased for $2.00. But it will be a $2.00 well worth it and also in support of a good cause.
For more on top shelf stories and what that’s all about, check out a recent post titled “A premium service is coming soon…top shelf stories.”.
So in the midst of last week’s topic of the week, there was a lot of other stuff going on also that I couldn’t really speak of at the time because I wanted to keep everything topic focus.
It took a lot not for me to devolve into some of this.
But now that all of that is over, what do you want to hear about first…?
Take the poll and let me know?
- Two friends find out their girlfriends are cheating on them
- I received some fan mail
- My brother proves again where I stand in his life
Also, I am in the process of trying to draw in a much larger subscriber/follower base and I have been experimenting with Facebook ads lately so if you see some post that might seem more advertisement or promotional based, that is why.
About the topic of the week thing again real quick.
I went with the “Will I make it or will I fail” topic because I knew it was going to be the slower and least excited ones I got planned. Some other ones to look forward to, that will be a heck of a lot more exciting include… a week of characters caricatured…
Smart phones and other technology that prisoners know nothing about…
A week of prison fitness…
And maybe even a week of prison recipes.
But all of that is to view at a later time.
For now we will take a little break from the topic of the week, and get back to some good old fashion Joewriteshiswrongs stories and cartoons for awhile.
Thanks for all of your support!
Keep “liking” Joewriteshiswrongs as I keep trying to snowball this blog from prison.
Check out my home boy Q out there doing great things proving that even after release that guys like us can really get it together for themselves. Homeboy this is a great cause you are working towards and I am gonna tell everyone here to check this out. Keep doing what you’re doing.

This cartoon should have gone with a previous blog.
No big deal, though.
The message behind it is just as relevant now…
Well at least in blog world I am, in reality I’m still about a bunch of months from release.
But hey on your computer screens and phones, I’m back.
It’s good to be back too. Posting again!
Hope you missed me because I sure as hell missed this!
Hey blog… Let’s not fight again.
Ok so it’s basically like I just packed up and walked out on my blog. But I swear I’m trying to get back to all this here. I mean, here I am, knocking on the door. Standing on the front steps, out in the cold…
Can I come in?!? It’s freezing out here!
So, a couple of truths…
I really got to the point where I just wasn’t feeling this blog shit anymore. It’s hard to explain too.
Something to do with me feeling like I was putting way too much of myself out there. Too fast.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m a narcissist. So of course all I want to do is tell you about my crazy ass life. But… I feel like there’s a time and a place for all of that.
I just don’t know when that time is really.
What I do know is that we’re not there yet in this relationship of ours.
You know, you, me…
Who read this blog.
I don’t know what the hell I was trying to do there.
But funny, right?
God Damn! I am such a fucking awesome writer.
Sorry that narcissistic thing again.
Ok, I think I am finally over myself for the moment. So let me try to get to explaining things here.
Real quick, some other reasons I got sick of this blog…
I’m in prison.
The prison found out about my blog and had been (probably still is) monitoring Joewriteshiswrongs.
By the way I kinda almost got sent to the hole and put under investigation for this whole blog shit. But that was a long time ago and something I didn’t want to mention at the time.
So with all that being said, the content I post can’t really REALLY “go-in” like it would otherwise. If not, for those variables.
I’m in prison. And I have to third party all these posts through the most amazing and awesome Jen. God knows I was putting a lot on her to try and keep up with. So, all that got super stressful for the both of us.
Also I’m in prison and can’t really handle things here myself. I hate having to rely on other people in order to get shit done. Not to say I’m not extremely grateful for the help.
Last, did I mention I’m in prison…?
Ok not as funny as I hoped that would be.
Without Joewriteshiswrongs, I’m lost. Really. I am. I have to admit that.
This blog has been such a part of my life for the last year or so, that letting it go or reaching the point where I was really ready to was actually PAINFUL!
I had put so much of myself into all this already, into this voice of mine from here in prison scribed out in text across your screen that I finally realized…
I CAN’T LET THAT GO!
And yes, granted, I got my hopes WAY UP about what I expected to come from all of this.
Did I really think I would have WAY MORE exposure and a lot more active followers wearing “FREE JAY G” tee shirts ready to drive a dump truck through the fences for me..?
Of course not…
I think that TV show the following had me a little delusional here.
So yes, I admit, I did set my hopes a little high with all this.
But now look at me. I’m way more level headed.
I mean, I get it now.
Who the hell really wants to read about a guy in prison who draws stupid cartoons and is over all just a suck ass artist, and pretty much sucks in all other facts of life too?
Oh my God I hate my life.
I mean, sometimes.
Other times, I know I am fucking awesome and my writing is like Stephen King here. Except way funnier!
Who wouldn’t want to read this blog!?!
Probably no one.
How the fuck do I have any followers at all?
Hey look that brings me to a great point.
If you follow this blog then follow this blog. Don’t just click “follow” then fade to the back. I need advice and support here. Please do that for me.
I mean, I’d do it for you. But in case you missed it before.
I’m in prison.
I knew I would out do my last attempt with that and make that funny at last!
That’s all I got for now. I’ve exhausted my humor powers.
If you didn’t laugh once throughout this, click unfollow immediately.
You’re a douche bag. I don’t want you looking at my shit.
To everyone else, you give a guy in prison hope. Thank you for that.
Check out this pic too. It’s me and my awesome Jen from the weekend after my birthday.
I am penitentiary ballin!
Whether in prison, or the free world, life can throw you a lot of negativity…
Avoid that shit at all cost.
Duck and weave all that like a boxer does…
And take heed to my forecast too.
No more clouds overhead…
Be everywhere that the sun stays.
