“The Journal of Wall Grimm” is rated R due to adult content in the form of sex, drug and alcohol abuse, vulgar language, and other things that can occur in the world of a guy in his early 20′s. 

Here’s a comment from a reader, Catnip at  http://lifewithcatnip.com/ which I had to include here:

“Oh fuck, what a great post… sweet prince, master of the mind-melting, synapse-frazzling headfuck.”

My penname is Sage Doyle and I am the author of this blog, which is comprised of the fictional journal entries of Wall Grimm.

It’s possible to read the journal out of sequence and many posts can stand on their own.  If there are references or characters you need to clarify, don’t hesitate to ask questions.  I will fill you in with all the details necessary to bring you up to date.

Feel free to check out the different pages and categories:



THE JOURNAL ENTRIES INDEX  – lists all the journal entries chronologically.

CHARACTER DIRECTORIES – list characters with a brief description and the links to all the posts each character appears in.  The directories are broken down into 4 pages alphabetically by characters whose names begin with (A – F), (G – K), (L – P), and (Q – Z).

WALL GRIMM – a little about Grimm himself, some of the content on this page comes directly from various posts.

EMMA – Grimm’s love interest, some of the content on this page comes directly from various posts.

GRIMM’S EASTWOOD & STEPPING WOLVES  – Grimm calls his cowboy hat “Eastwood” and his cowboy boots “Stepping Wolves”, some of the content on this page comes directly from various posts.

GARY OLDMAN – a tribute to Gary Oldman whom Grimm admires, some of the content on this page comes directly from various posts.

HASTY VISITS SAGE IN BOSTON – These posts are not fiction.  They are written by Hasty at http://hastywords.wordpress.com/ and myself, Sage Doyle.  Hasty came up to the Boston area to meet and visit me and this page documents our time together.  Don’t be confused with the Wall Grimm posts which are fiction.  Enjoy!



JOURNAL ENTRIES – broken down by the numbers of the posts, 1-25…etc.

RANDOM GRIMMNESS – Images or comments by Grimm not officially included in the Journal Entries.

NOTES FROM SAGE DOYLE – posts directly from me that include blog updates, awards, anything that isn’t a part of the fiction…

ROAD TRIP JOURNAL – During the storyline of Wall Grimm, he goes on a road trip.  These posts are included in the regular Journal Index and Category, but I thought I’d also include them in their own category.

It was recommended to me by J T Weaver http://jtweaver.net/ that it might be advisable to begin a blog just for Grimm.  I believe it may have been suggested by other bloggers at some point in the past, however I suppose I wasn’t ready at the time.  I apologize for not giving them credit, since I don’t remember who made the suggestion.  Anyway, thank you J T.

  2. Hi. – First – thanks for popping in my place (http://ja2da.com) the other day.

    Next – I’m interested in why you chose to write under a pseudonym (can you believe that that is a real word? I’m not much good at pseudoku, are you?)

    First – full disclosure: I wrote for years and told no one – but eventually ego won out. I too, though now in my seventies, am ‘currently unpublished’ – if you are a spring chicken in your thirties or forties you may take this a a dreadful warning – it does get easier to live with as you get older though.

    What really intrigues me is why you write under a pen name – and then admit it?

    I always thought if, as a popular and published author, you wanted to write in a different genre, rather than alienate your loyal fans you would write as someone else. Fine.

    I can see, if writing is a full time job, it could be useful to have an alias to put on each day during working hours, to give you the feeling of ‘going to work’.

    But, over and above all this, if you are writing for (hopefully) the scrutiny of the general populace and are not brave enough to face the same as your real self, can this not be the ball and chain that is keeping you imprisoned and forever ‘currently unpublished’?

    Just wonder how you feel about this.


  3. Glad to stop by, and thanks to you as well. Yeah pseudonym is one of those words from the days of yore. And I’m great at Sudoku until the last box, then I have to go and redo all the numbers. Funny how they all fit until that last box.
    Well, that’s a great question. At first, I had a career that would have considerably conflicted with some of the content of the stuff I was writing. That’s where the idea came from originally. Eventually, I just liked the idea of having a penname and didn’t consider not having one. Just over a year ago is when I started the blog and commenced on the trail of social media, etc. I was informed that if you want to publish under a name, penname or real name, then that’s the name you should focus on getting known by, so that’s what I did. In the beginning, all the attention I was getting started to freak me out, so at that point, if I was using my real name, I think I’d have given up. It would have felt a little invasive and overwhelming. I liked the shield of the penname, it felt comfortable, and I decided it was a good idea. At this point, I don’t think it’s been a hindrance to being published, since I only began submitting my novel at the end of this Summer, so it hasn’t been a long agonizing process. I think the complication would come in if I need to do my own marketing and my identity needs to be revealed. I suppose if it comes to that I’d do it, but still obviously use the name.
    In the end, if I’m never published, I feel like the rewards and satisfaction I’ve gotten from blogging have been more than I ever imagined possible. I was reluctant to start a blog, not much of a technology fan. But I’ve enjoyed it and valued every minute of it. I’m very satisfied where I’m at right now, though I’d love to see my book on a shelf someday. Worse case scenario, I print up a book jacket for it, stick it on a book at Barnes & Noble, then take a picture of it. Just seeing it would be cool lol
    I hope that answers your question, feel free to ask more.
    Thanks Dave!

  17. Hey Sage, You are quite extraordinary I must say, i could hardly stop reading. Not sorry about your addictions if your not, it that is who you are, go for it. I like your work and have become fascinated. Anything but vanilla…right? Me too. Your blog is great…and wanted to say thank you for following and I like you a lot, especially when you almost had to fuck that girl got your key out of panties and locked yourself in the bedroom. hahahha. I hope you are still friends. ok then, take care.

    • Thank you, I’m glad you like my writing. But just so you know, Wall Grimm and Amon-Re are fiction. Though, I’ve used some of my own experiences in life as inspiration, some segments of my own journal for Grimm. A lot of people think it’s all real, and I take that as a compliment. I did follow you, I thought, but I just went to your blog and I wasn’t. Yet I’ve been having some kind of glitch with my follow button, so I just hit it again. Thanks for coming by Catnip, hope to see you around again.
