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. 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. 👊

Musical Writing Prompt #6 (Farewell James Horner)

I've been neglecting my Musical Writing Prompt duties lately, but I will try to get back on that. And so I will give you #6 in the series this week.

This week film composer James Horner died flying an airplane. He has composed so many films through the years, and his body of work is insanely powerful and immense. It feels appropriate then to honor him with this installment.

I have chosen his track titled "The Ludlows" from the film Legends of the Fall. A great film, and an amazing soundtrack by Horner to boot. And, in a way, it's majesty and sometimes mellow quality seems to fit appropriately with the passing of a musical legend.

Thanks for the music, James Horner.
The Ludlows

Listen up, and get to writing. Enjoy.

Hey readers of the E variety. Namely Kindle. Does this sound cool? Would you use it?

Fresh paint on my website

Fresh paint on my website

Got tired of my previous paint, so scraped it all down and repainted the mess (that's how it works, right?). This version is still just as responsive as the last one (so works great on mobile), but this version allows me the ability to feature certain posts/stories at the top of the homepage. The Home menu is a means to filter posts by a story or type (short story, blurb, novel, etc).

Here I am:

Let me know what you think, if you check it out.
