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. 👊

I was 18 once. I was so young, so foolish, so foolish to be so young.

I'm rewriting two old short stories as one for my pal, Philip Neale​. He has a website where he showcases work from up-and-coming, indie authors such as ourselves. He's currently having trouble getting folks to submit, so please consider giving him a shout out. He showcases your work for a single month, and spreads the link around social media land during that time.







My story is about a man, Ned, who has something against mirrors. That's all I'll say on the matter for now. It's a mystery/horror piece. We plan to put it up for January, which means I need to get on it.

The Jackson 5 was playing at Denny's and I wanted to go dancing across the joint and see if anyone would join in.

For those who still enjoy Spaces or are trying to make it work for something, this is good news.

Starting Text Threads with no Limits



Following a lot of feedback, we've removed the limit on new text threads in Spaces. Within the latest versions of the Spaces app on iOS and Android and on the Web, you've got (almost) no character count limits when starting a thread with text.







As always, please send us your ideas/issues using the Send Feedback menu item in the Spaces app as that's the best way to ensure we'll see it. Thanks~

I've never been much of a John Carpenter fan. But, I always have a soft spot for the cheese factory that is Ghosts of Mars.
