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. 👊

Deep Thought #13


Deep Thought #13





One time in a very heated setting, an older gentleman started with, "I probably shouldn't say this." The first thing that popped into my head was to say, "Then don't." But I chose to bite my tongue instead, and he said what he was thinking. As soon as he was finished, I thought to myself, "Yeah, he shouldn't have said that."









If you preface something you are about to say with, "I probably shouldn't say this," you already know the answer is no. Just don't say it, because you'll regret it later. It is possible to be wrong, and to say things you regret. The ability to open one's mouth and speak one's mind doesn't necessarily make one brave or bold. Sometimes it just means they lack the ability to keep it closed.
