About the A.E. Jackson Publish0x Blog:
A.E. Jackson's Publish0x Blog will host short stories, interactive fiction, and informative articles.
The Freewrite House (@freewritehouse) on Steemit has been a great source of inspiration to A.E. Jackson. Most of the recent short stories published on his Steemit Blog are a result of prompts from the Daily 5-Minute Freewrite. Along with this source of prompts, A.E. Jackson participates in a writing group that swaps stories with one another. Short story prompts include a Genre, a Subject, and a Character. The submitted work should be between 750 min - 3,500 max words, and are due by Midnight on Tuesdays. And everyone in the group will get a copy of each other's short story to critique. New prompts arrive by each week! Some of those short stories are already posted, and more will follow.
Some of the first book A.E. Jackson read were from the Choose Your Own Adventure series. If you are not familiar with these small children's books, they allow the reader to become the main character. Beyond that, the plot of the story changes based on decisions by the reader. There can be many possible endings - but they may only be discovered by the reader making choices. At this point in the exploration of Interactive Fiction, A.E. Jackson has rekindled the desire to write a story, he's received the gift of knowledge to guide the way, and tools to build, and the openness of a friendly community to encourage and provide a plethora of published examples. He plans to promote the growth and exploration of the child-author to discover what he has to offer the world!
You will find well researched articles which relate to the Publish0x Blogging Platform and are intended to benefit writers exploring Publish0x, as well as Whaleshare Members exploring the craft of writing. Becuase A.E. Jackson is a new author - still learning the craft, community, and industry - he often reads helpful guides or how-to books, and attends conferences or webinars to hone his skills. Gleaning what he can from these resources, A.E. Jackson is eager to help other budding authors looking for answers.
How A.E. Jackson Adds Value to the Publish0x Platform:
The greatest value A.E. Jackson plans to add is helping to foster and build an encouraging community! On the Steemit platform he is involved with Steem Basic Income (@steembasicincome) which is a great resource that he enrolls other Steemians, and further funds that initiative. Also on Steemit, communities like Freewrite House (@freewritehouse), PowerHouseCreatives (@jaynie), and The Writer's Block (@thewritersblock) are all great groups and A.E. Jackson is doing more to help see them grow and thrive. Groups like Utopian.io (@utopian-io) are essential to expanding the Steemit Platform and encouraging developers to push the envelope of what is possible - and A.E. Jackson plans to further fund many of those new projects. As these types of ventures become know to him in the Publish0x platform - A.E. Jackson looks forward to taking an active role to see them prosper.
A.E. Jackson plans to add value to the Publish0x Platform in three other ways as well. First, to invest in Publish0x. When possible, he plans to support the cryptocurrency by purchasing more WhaleShare tokens from the marketplace. Second, he is active in recruiting creatives from his own network, and reaching into new groups of people to introduce, invite, and educate them on the Publish0x Platform. Third, the majority of A.E. Jackson's posts will be set to 100% Power Up - which will keep more Steem in the Publish0x-economy.
How Often A.E. Jackson Posts and Votes on Other's Content:
Every day! Based on the refueling of Publish0x tokens in his account, A.E. Jackson plans to space out Voting, and Posting Comments on an Hourly schedule. Each day he reviews posts curated by several groups that he follows to find fresh talented writers, or interesting pieces that are well presented. When a post catches his attention, A.E. Jackson will respond with a meaningful comment, and start a personal interaction with the Author. This is a great way to encourage new writers, and those new to the Publish0x Platform. Because his votes are spaced out, most - if not all - will be 100% votes with full power. A.E. Jackson also finds great value in reposting quality blogs using the reposting feature. When a series he enjoys, or a service to the community operates well, A.E. Jackson is eager to share those posts with others!
Something FUN About A.E. Jackson:
In 2017, A.E. Jackson was fortunate enough to experience a media flight with the United States Air Force Thunderbirds. The Aerial Demonstration Team was performing at the Thunder Over Dover event, and they reached out to local media for press coverage. A.E. Jackson was selected and met with the pilot in the morning for briefing. Soon the F-16 rocketed down the runway and up into the sky to perform a series of maneuvers. It was one of the best experiences of his life!
