“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.” 

– Sylvia Plath

Three things about me:

  1. I love reading.
  2. I love writing.
  3. I love the bad guy in the story.

I am by no means a professional author – that is merely the distant dream of a lowly wretch such as myself. However, if I want to write something BIG, I will have to start small. That is the purpose of Love The Bad Guy.

This is my little slice of the Internet, where I can post my written works, my random ramblings, and god only knows what others kinds of drivel.

To satisfy any lingering curiosity you may or may not have about me, here’s a quick summary:

  • My name is Jess.
  • I’m a woman.
  • I’m twenty-ish.
  • I’m Australian.
  • I have four jobs.
  • I am clearly insane.

For now, thank you for joining me, and happy reading!

  1. haha….Love your brashness! Have you ever considered doing comedy writing too?

    “The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt” <—-coudln't agree more with this phrase. That's why I think blogs are a great way to express yourself and to get out of being shy /self-conscious about your writing…..The first time I posted something, I was SO concerned that it sucked…now I'm so much more at ease. It's better to be 90% good and published , than 100% good and stuck in your head is how another blogger once put it!…. Plus, if anyone doesn't like what I write–o well—I still have a good amount of people who do like it! 🙂

    1. Sylvia Plath did have some insightful moments in her short life, poor girl.

      I have dabbled in comedy writing before, but I seem to have a dark sense of humour, according to some of my friends (I have one in particular who tells me I read “depressing” books and that I need to start writing stories about puppies and unicorns and sunshine. But, phhht, who wants to read about that?) 😉

  2. I’m going to try to work my way all the way through your blog in the next couple of weeks, but what from what I’ve read so far, you are very talented!

  3. Nice to meet you Jess! I’ve been stalking your book challenge posts – we actually have quite a lot in common and you chose to include some books in your list which I left out last minute. Look forward to perusing your blog further!

    Louise 🙂

    1. Hooray! A stalker! 😀

      Glad you liked my choices – the Challenge was incredibly difficult at times, wasn’t it? But it was definitely a nice way to take a trip down memory lane.

      Thanks for looking at stalking through my blog!

  4. Hey, I got scared there for a minute that you were about to say you were packing it in. Whew!

    It’s nice to have your own little slice of the Web whether 1 person or a million people visit. Just keep writing so we can keep reading!

    1. ‘Tis an age-old question that may never be completely solved… Ahh, the mysteries of life!

      But congrats on writing a novel! I’m currently working on what has turned into my longest short-story ever, but I’m not quite at novel-level writing. Well done!

      1. I too have a bad-guy confession to make … I am just finishing writing a novel which started life as harmless fluff, but got hijacked by the villain and evolved, before I could prevent it, into a deeply romantic tale of love, betrayal, redemption and second chances. It refused to do as it was told from Day One, ran totally off-course, turned my pleasant little fluff plot upside-down, and is quite possibly the best thing I have ever written. All because I fell in love with my own villain. Sigh.

  5. Impressive work, lovethebadguy AKA Jess AKA first-poster-on-Awesome! I will try to make my way through all of your posts as I’m able. Keep on keeping on!

  6. Okay so who are some of your favorite bad guys? And does that mean you are one of those gals that dates the bad boyfriends? Hehe had to ask 😉

    1. Ahh, that is a question I’m sure many people were wondering; hence my new blog segment that I have called “Why I Love That Bad Guy”.

      So far, I have expressed my adoration for Lord Voldemort (from Harry Potter) and Iago (from Othello). But there are just so many…

      (As for the “bad boyfriends”…. They do have a certain indescribable appeal…) 😉

      1. Haha I knew it would be Lord Voldemort. Iago is a bit of a surprise, though. And as for the bad bfs…that’s EVERY girl’s truth! Haha.

    1. I’m honoured you would even think to nominate me, Katy! After much deliberation, I have entered my blog — why not, right?

      I do hope you’ve entered your own blog, too! I’ll look forward to seeing your name on the list. 🙂

      Thanks again for letting me know about the comp.

      1. Glad to hear it! And why not, indeed?!

        I haven’t entered yet, but I might give it a go too 🙂 Aussie bloggers, represent!

  7. Hey Jess, nice to ‘meet you’ in this part of the blogging world. I love your about page and your header about loving the bad guy caught me straight away.
    What do you study at University if you don’t mind me asking? 🙂

    1. Not at all. 🙂 I am studying Media and Communications (mostly writing/publishing units), as well as the Italian language.

      Very nice to “meet” you, too, beckyday!

  8. Jess, love your blog. I find blogging very freeing. Just stuff I write down every day. It doesn’t have to be perfect because there’s always tomorrow. I find it very freeing. Wow and you have a very impressive resume so far and here you are just a kid (compared to me that is!) Anyway, happy writing Jess and I look forward to visiting. 😀

  9. Awesome blog, Jess. And I totally get your unemployed vs full-time student dilemma.

    When I was a full-time student on Youth Allowance, I got sick of having to explain the student/casual work/non-employment status to distant family members and seasoned professionals, so whenever I was asked what I did for a living, I’d say – with a completely straight face – that I worked for the government. This made them think twice about pressing for more details about my employment. And it helped that I was living in Canberra at the time. I always told the truth afterwards, but not before I watched them squirm for a few seconds.

    The best part was that it wasn’t exactly a lie. Centrelink is a government department, after all.

    1. Why, thank you. And please do! Can I get you anything? Tea? Coffee? More short stories and weirdly adoring posts about bad guys? (It’s gonna have to be the latter. I’ve run out of mugs.)

  10. Thanks for stopping by my blog, because it brought me here. We seem to have so much in common. I appreciate your dark sense of humor and would love to have just an ounce of it! I so wanted to write a humorous blog – but that is not what is happening! I have started down the same blog path as you with much the same experience. I hope I will be able to maintain it as you have.
    Unlike you I don’t love the bad guy, but I do have a weak spot for the underdog!

    1. Thank you, Jane! I do hope you continue to blog; it is sometimes hard to find the time, but it is always delightful when people respond to what you write. 😀

      And, of course, Trifecta does a wonderful job of joining fellow bloggers together!

      I hope to see more of you around my lil’ slice of the Internet, and good luck with your own postings. 🙂

  11. Amazing. Finally a blog about Disney (Pixar) films. I love children’s films, maybe because I have a younger brother and sister (wait a minute, she’s 18), maybe just because they are AWESOME and always make me laugh and cry in a way adult films just can’t!
