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. 👊

A real, stupid conversation. This happened.

A dude to me: You're old enough to remember when people weren't pussies. You know what I mean?

Me: There's vaginas everywhere just walking around? Really?

Dude: Shut up, you know what I mean.

Me: (still feigning surprise) I did not know this.

(And then he gave up talking to me and turned to someone else he thought would agree with him and listen to his drivel.)

And yes, I did know what he meant. And it's a stupid talking point. Empathy does not make us weak. It makes us stronger.
