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

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.

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. 👊

At the meager age of seven, Adam Hunter had to grow up. He couldn’t work, because the law said he was too young. So without a penny to their name, he took to taking what was needed for the Hunter home.

After his mother died when he was 15, he didn’t know what to do with himself so he just kept doing what he was good at. Where he went wrong with his life was when he decided he wanted more. He’d always been poor, and he decided i…
