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 #8

Today's musical writing prompt is a real treat. It comes from Kaleida, who I've only recently discovered, and who have some amazing music. I discovered them through Keanu Reeves' recent flick John Wick. They had a song, titled "Think", used during the film's soundtrack. It stood out for me, like many things in that movie. It's a great movie. But any rate... I have since listened to other ditties by Kaleida, and can confirm it is great stuff, especially for writing development.

Here is their cover of the song "Take me to the River". This is one of those songs that I like to put on, close my eyes and let the story come to me. And when I find a song that works like that for me, I have to share it. I have to let the world know, this is an amazing song. So, prepare yourself to write.
