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. 👊

Google I/O + Elaine's dance from Seinfeld = AWESOME

Image
Let me give you a reason to love +Google+...

Google just started their huge I/O conference this week and they have this thing going where you can take a public post with #request, and a Google employee at the conference will try desperately to meet that request. It's pretty cool, honestly.

Well, in classic fashion, I couldn't help myself. I decided somebody needed to make an outlandish request. And here is what I did...

Nathan Weaver6 minutes ago +Melissa Daniels : I have a #request . Can you get footage of yourself doing the Elaine awkward/white girl dance from Seinfeld?

This is my one silly request, I guess. I just wanna see all the looks on folks' faces as you get the kicks and arms flailing.

PS--If you meet my request, I will film a short clip of me turning around and saying, "Sweet fancy Moses!"

Update:#request  fullfilled.

Longer than a 7 year itch

Every now and again I get this itch to become a stand-up comedian. It usually results in me trying to develop some material, and I usually end up being frustrated in the end. Here is one such piece...

Nathan Weaver9 hours ago I was thinking... we Americans are pretty full of ourselves. I mean, what other country would dare have a magazine titled Self? I'm thinking I'll start a new magazine called Someone Else, and it will be filled with interviews of people you can't relate to and articles on topics that are irrelevant to you. So, it'll be like an adult reading a teen magazine. 6    5 Powered by socialditto
