New contribution to Totally Novel on writing, update on Sweet Sixteen Killer

Image
I've been pretty quiet lately on the blog, sorry about that. I've been laying mostly low, though I did recently begin contributing to a new website for writers and readers called Totally Novel. My first contribution for members of the site is a post I titled 3 things that prevented me from writing a novel. To read the post, sign up for a free trial. Take a look around and if you don't wanna stay, don't renew membership. That said, it's a pretty cool effort being put together by a former Google+ member like myself. As a matter of fact there are several members on the site from the old Google+ days. (Side note: there is a free membership option)
I will be contributing to the Totally Novel blog bi-monthly for now. My next addition will be in August. I'm super excited for the site and I hope you can come join us and become a part of the groups, forums, blog, workshops, and more. 
All that said, I haven't given up here. This is still my primary site and blog. 👊

Self Promotion and Rogues Gallery

If you are a writer, check out this interesting writeup by C.M. Marcum called Self-Promotion. It makes you think about who you are as a writer. Who is reading your stuff, what genre are you writing in? Who are you anyway? It's got me thinking about a few things I could do better, and that's a good thing. Seriously, go check it out. And read some of her stuff while you're there, she's a good writer.

I'm also gonna be starting a new thing soon, something called the Rouges Gallery. Truthfully, I'm stealing the name from Neal James, and the idea is half-stolen from him too. But I got his permission, so it's all good.

So what is the Rogues Gallery? Well, it's a sort of I'll scratch your back, if you scratch mine thing. Minus the actual, literal scratching of the back. There are many other writers out there struggling to put their stamp on paper, and I'll be featuring some of these Rogues by sharing some of their work.

If you're interested in joining the Rogues Gallery, email me.
