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. 👊

Need a name (first and last for a male)

Need a name (first and last for a male)



Normally I come up with my own names for stories through researching names, but thought I'd try something different this time. Give me suggestions for first and last names of a male character in my short story I'm working on.







A little about the character, if it helps



He's just being released from prison after serving 22 years of a life sentence for a murder he didn't commit. He's pretty low, and uncertain what to do in life, because he had given up on life and was prepared to live out his life in prison until new DNA evidence exonerated him.

Today, you get something completely different. Most of my stories can be pretty gritty, and where there is comic relief it doesn’t last forever.

But today is different, because it’s the start of the sharing of a series of short stories about Josephine the Dragon written by Taylor Christine.

I met Taylor at an open mic that meets every Wednesday evening at Stone Spiral in Maplewood, Missouri. If you've never been to this place, you're missing out, and especially if you've never been on their open mic night. Good times, good music, good poetry and yes some stories. Taylor writes and reads stories about a dragon named Josephine, and they tend to be short, sweet and humorous. She also writes poetry and I'm sure will continue writing stories of other consequence as well. But wherever her road takes her, for now, you can enjoy a series of stories about Josephine which I will be posting here.

You can follow Taylor on Twitter with @becky_ketchup.

Walking Dark Passages

Image
So several years back, like 10, I watched this golden oldie called Dark Passage starring the husband-and-wife team Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. And today, I watched it again. It's an old film noir classic, so of course I had to watch it. But it's also much more than that, it does some highly unconventional things.

Not just Android users, I would say... hahaha....

This is actually pretty sexy. I had seen a link to this before, but never clicked through and read. Shame on me for skimming over it, because this is pretty nifty.



Anybody using this feature yet? Do you use Trello, what do you use it for?

Have a fun day off, if you have one.







How many of you have to work today?

I've had the pleasure of hearing this performed live on multiple occasions, and knowing these two lovely kids. They make awesome music. Enjoy!
