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. 👊

Whenever my son goes binging all (ALL) the Power Rangers shows, I get an itch to make my own comedic take. I'm about the right age to play a teen in a 90s show, too. I'll be 35 in October.

This is a Slickhead fish. They reside at the bottom of the ocean.







Despite seeming super creepy to look at, they're actually very useful to us. They and other deep sea fish consume over a million tons of CO2 each year.

I'm reading through and pulling all my beta reader feedback into a Word doc. This has been a fantastic process. So many things to ponder, so many times I was nodding with a smile when the desired effect came across.







Definitely more work to be done, but I have so much faith in this story now. So much faith in my characters. Having a beta readership was one of the best things I could have done for this book series.

My wife and I are celebrating 15 years of marriage today. The marriage is legally old enough to drive now. I wrote a little something in honor of the surreal occasion.
