J. R. describes his earnest writing process as "I pour out onto paper or Internet pages the deep feelings and impactful experiences in my heart and mind. Then dry my creative juices and emotional liquids a little before baring my soul to my audience. Similar to singing with THE UF Acapella Choir or performing a Handel's 'Messiah' solo in front of thousands!"
