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. 👊

So this is a thing. You can go to the X-Files site and add yourself into this poster. Yep, that's me, looking like a government lackey who is secretly a believer.

I watched the first episode last night. Mildly indifferent about how some of it went down, but overall feeling great that it's back. I won't dish out any spoilers, for those who may not have seen it yet.







Mulder dies. MULDER DIES.







Mulder doesn't die, obviously. Not yet. :O







I was a huge fan of The X-Files back in the day. Such a great show, and came at just the right age in my life to completely entrance me.







What did you think of the first episode? Are you stoked about this new season? Did you watch The X-Files back in the day?

A little extra writing...

"Think back to when you were kids. You didn't hate Red, then. Think back to that. Give him a chance. Give him a chance to be the kid he used to be, not the man he's turned into. And that goes for you, too, Luke. Love first. The rest comes natural."

Where are all of the ladies at on Medium?

Where are all of the ladies at on Medium?



I'm not one to gripe much, but I just scrolled through the Top 7 stories on Medium before I got to #8 which was written by a female. Now, I recognize most of how the Top Stories is made up has to do with algorithms and data, but come on... are women that underrepresented on Medium? Are women just not writing the good stuff? I doubt that. Then, come on, you're killing me.







And maybe it really is just relevant to the moment, but it was kinda on my mind, because I'm working on a collaborative project and I was trying over the past few days to make sure there was an even amount of female and male writers.







But jeepers.

Clinton vows to investigate Area 51 and UFOs if elected. What if Clinton was actually an alien, and her real purpose was to investigate Area 51 and UFOs so she could shut it down and find a UFO to get off this wretched planet?







Deep. Space. Mind. Blown.

What if The Creeps was a disease, and every time someone gave you The Creeps, it was like getting this disease where you saw people as habitually creepy?







Creepy.

READ ME for Babylon Tales



Babylon Tales is where I'll be posting my writing and writing related writing. Mer?







I write predominately noir-ish stuff within these genres: crime, thriller, horror, science fiction, and western. Occasionally, I dabble in some fantasy, but that's none of your business really. Um, I mean...







I hope you enjoy the short stories, novellas, novel excerpts and writings on writing that I share. Have a loverly day.
