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. 👊

One of my least favorite feelings in life is when you realize you're coasting. That things are just moving. Work, home life, whatevs. It's all on cruise control. I hate it so hard.









Any time you think of changing it up, you tell yourself you don't have time. You tell yourself not to interrupt the coasting. Don't turn off cruise control and make your own speed, just keep rolling down the highway in the right lane. Don't pass anyone. Don't exit the highway. Don't make any stops. Don't take the scenic route. Don't try that local diner which boasts the best burger in town.









I hate it. So hard.









Time passes, and then you look back with the eyes of regret. You should have stopped. You should have changed lanes. You should have tried that damn burger. But now the road is ending, you're entering a one-way street, and the diner has been closed for years.
