Welcome to the Shenanigans of J.D. Brewer!


Some people call J.D. Brewer a leprechaun, but they just don’t understand that she’s simply vertically challenged. There are those who say she’s fiercer than a baby pterodactyl, despite the fact that she was probably a stegosaurus in another life. Others have titles for her that are a bit more generic: friend, teacher, student, family, etc.The truth is, she spends her time gathering moments from the people (and puppies) she loves, and from those moments, she creates. She glues letters into words, words into thoughts, and thoughts into questions. When she’s not out having a blast in the universe she shares with you, she’s creating her own through pen, paper, and keyboard.

A Brainstorming Exercise by j.d. brewer

I made this brainstorming exercise for a workshop I did at the Buda Public Library. I’ll end up using it at some point in my classroom next year as well. I originally intended it for personal use, but thought sharing is a good thing. I emailed Message to Bears to ask for permission to use […]

Un-Saved Saviors: J.D. Brewer on Editing Setbacks

Mt. Lemmon, Arizona, circa March 2016. Imagine two women, holed up in a cabin typing until their fingers cramp and their eyes bleed. That was my work-wife and I. Three weeks of no internet, no husbands, hiking breaks, coffee (lots of coffee) breaks, and writing. It was such a productive time. Against a backdrop of […]

J.D. Brewer on Criticism Vs. Negativity

Check out the Video Below — On Criticism Vs. Negativity — for a personalized reading of the following blog.  I get asked all the time, “How do you deal with criticism? Especially when it’s malicious and unkind?” It took me a while to understand this question. After all, what does it mean to deal with […]

Why it is Okay for America to Mourn with France

I have seen and heard a lot of callous responses to people showing support for France, and, as is the social norm today, whether you’ve changed your profile picture to the French flag or not has become another line of division for personal and political agendas. There are some who think waving a French flag […]

To the Motherless Daughters on their Wedding Day

The first boy I ever loved didn’t love me back. We were small town kids with small town hearts, and neither person knew how to speak the language of the other. And there is a timeless beauty in that. I don’t blame him. At the time, I was a grieving hot-mess. I was learning how […]

And the Winner of the Universe is…

 A Vacation Story: It was the kind of fishing pole that’d snap in half with the slightest of pressure. White rod, yellow reel, with Snoopy sleeping on the job. Yet when it was placed in my hands, it could have been Excalibur for all the power I felt by holding it. Before I even left […]

The Evolution of Intrepid’s Book Cover- Featuring Laura Ottensman

Picture high school: students milling around, slamming lockers, elbowing their ways through life. The claustrophobic feeling of being trapped by the florescent lights that were always too bright, bouncing off the ugly, speckled tile and the ordinary, metal lockers. Then there was Laura with her sketchbooks and her the-world-is-my-oyster smiles walking down the hallway. Even […]

The Modern Day Vagabonds- Featuring Sarah and Lee Martin

“We fired our jobs,” she explained. “We don’t call it quitting… it’s just that the 9 to 5 wasn’t giving us what we wanted out of life.” Talking to Sarah and Lee Martin is fascinating. They, by far, have one of the healthiest perspectives on life, because they focus on living… not existing. A few […]
