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. 👊

October 15, 2015 I will do my first standup comedy show

October 15, 2015 I will do my first standup comedy show

I've been sitting on this long enough. Some of you know I have been trying my hand at standup this year, I have posted a little about it along the way. I started at an open mic this January, and have been going to an open mic almost every Wednesday night ever since.

And now, October 15 from 7pm to 9pm, I will be giving a show at Stone Spiral in Maplewood, Missouri (not far fromdowntown St. Louis). It's a lovely little jive with good drinks and food.

- Do I feel ready? No.

- Am I gonna bomb some jokes? Probably.

- Am I gonna be awesome? You betcha.

- Is it 3 days after my birthday? Yes.

- Will it be the best birthday present to myself ever? Yes.

- Will it be the worst birthday present to myself ever? Probably, because I'll beat myself up over all the stuff that didn't go well instead of focusing on the ones that did.

- Am I excited? Yes.

If you are receiving/seeing this message, and think there is a chance you could make it to the show, let me know in the comments. I will be making an Event soon, and can send you an invite.

Oh, and there is no charge for the show. Though, I do get to put out a tip jar.
