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. 👊

Defiance 2050 beta gameplay.

Here's ten minutes of some gameplay in case you wanted to see some. I don't do any talking, just ten minutes of gameplay.







If you didn't play any Defiance in the previous gen console era, it's the same game as far as I can tell. That's no complaint. I was hoping they would make it backwards compatible or something. I never got to play all the way through with Defiance and always wanted to.







It definitely feels like the game runs smoother and it seems to look better graphically. They've been hard at work for sure. And it's a fun game.







It's a third-person shooter with a sci-fi story. It's based on the SyFy TV series of the same name (Defiance, that is). They were released at the same time and meant to compliment and influence each other.







Any rate, check it out, if interested.







What do you think of Defiance? Have you played it already before? Interested to try it? Sound off in the comments.

In a Mexican restaurant...







Middle-aged white dude was telling young black dude about women being sexually assaulted by boys at college fraternities and how hilarious it is. They both laughed a lot.







It took every ounce of my sanity not to punch these guys.

I decided to rant about people who rant about millennials destroying everything around us all the time. Like ALL THE TIME. Everything. Destroyed. Millennials to blame.
