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. 👊

Cafe de Mort

George sipped his espresso, and gently laid it to rest on the saucer.  The cafe he had come to know so well in the previous weeks had always made the perfect espresso, and he was going to miss it dearly.  The weeks leading to today had seemed very surreal, almost like a vacation for the mind.  The closer he got to today, the clearer his mind became, and for the first time in years he was feeling very content.  He felt fresh.  He was on the edge of rebirth.  He let himself enjoy the sun’s warmth, the cafe and view.
    To his left, several tables over, sat a man with his daughters.  One was a teenager and the other was much younger.  They had been here most days in the weeks George had, and were finishing up there usual breakfast and it seemed the daughters were especially hyper this morning.  They spoke rapid-French and George could rarely keep up with the conversations when eavesdropping.  The teen was quite a beautiful girl and often had an impact on passing boys her age.  The father…

What's Going On?

And I scream at the top of my lungs, "What's going on?!"

If you frequent my writing space, as in this website, you may be wondering what is going on?  I haven't posted an original story of my own in a while, and the last post I did was in September and was a guest post (Jennifer Word, in fact, and it is a good read so check it out).

Well, I haven't given up writing, so quit counting your chickens before they hatch, Sally Pinkerton.  No, I've just been working 'offline' or 'behind-the-scenes' more than I have on posting.  Which is shameful, and I promise I'll be posting something fresh soon.

What have I been doing, you ask?
Building 'spaces' for my online novellas.  I've started to build 'subsites' within my TFB domain.  I am currently working on subsites for 'The Agency' (which I plan to rewrite what is currently written), 'The Rolling Stone' and others.Building a subsite for 'Hardboil High'.  I'…
