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. 👊

This "short" story is almost done

This "short" story is almost done

FINALLY! I'm almost done with this really long short story. I'm sitting at 11,079 words as I type. Longest short story for me to date. Normally, I'm WELL under that for short stories. But this one... this one just kept begging for more and more. I kept trying to find ways to trim fat, but just couldn't. The joys and traps of writing mystery/crime stuff. If you skim too much, it's like "really?"

Only one more scene left. Just one more scene. And then it's done.

And when I'm done, I'll be like Elaine here.
