Hi, I’m Jennifer Hole

I’m the author of The Rise and Fall of Jenny Goodguts and I am trying to learn how to sing a lovesong to the world.

My book won’t change your life, but it can make you feel better about the one you have. I promise that I won’t talk about reaching your potential, except to consider that, as a concept, potential is ever expanding: the more you do, the more you can do. You can never, technically, reach it. So take a breath.

I write a sometimes-weekly newsletter (since 2014), sharing thoughts (humorous and otherwise) on life, nursing your creative spark, food waste, glow sticks, and my attempts to become a published author or recorded songwriter. There’s no spam and the newsletter is always free. It isn’t really a newsletter, but I don’t know what else to call it. Sometimes it is essays, once in a while a song, frequently updates on projects. What I write often helps people to laugh, to see things differently, and to feel better. I’d love to share it with you too.
