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. 👊

In my opinion, MJ Bush won the Internet today. Just read this post, +1, comment and log off for the day. Game over.

I can't quite believe this needs to be said. Again.





I have SIMPLE GUIDELINES if you want to comment on my posts. (And most of you totally get it.)









No bashing how others are learning to write.









No saying "You're missing the point" ...unless you try to explain it.









ABSOLUTELY no ad hominem attacks.









The basic point is to respect and support others. Most of you are wonderful, and I know you support me when I defend writers of all stripes. It doesn't matter how we learn or how we write.









We are creative creatures, bending the human experience to our will for the sake of imagination and story.









We are able to learn and grow in perpetuity.









We are unique, and no amount of teaching can make us fit into boxes.









WE ARE WRITERS.
