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. 👊

Old Notebooks. The Cloud. Backing up your Stuff.

In 2017, I originally shared this post on Google+. It's all about making sure you backup your writing. A good post, with good advice. Check it out. It also makes me a bit of a hypocrite, because I wasn't actively backing up my Google+ content. Yikes! Luckily, I was able to save the most important things I believe, shortly before the closure of consumer Google+. Any rate... a good read, and I'm remind you again, make sure you have duplicates and copies of all the content you create. Not just the writing. Your content is important, a part of you, and your journey. Don't lose that.

What are you currently watching?

I’m currently watching the German show Perfume, based on the old classic book of same name. It’s a modern take/retelling. It’s a slow burn mystery. I tried to get my wife to watch it with me, she was passing out during the first episode and called it boring, I believe. I like the slow burn, eerie, deep mystery going on myself. But then again, my favorite movie is Hitchcock’s Vertigo which is also kind of a slow burn mystery.

Be good to each other

Don't make me pull this car over. I will pull this car over and park and everything. Just sit there on the side of the road all awkward like. That's right. I'll parallel park, if I have to. I don't care.

14 questions about me

Saw someone else doing this, like the emails of old’en days,
and I thought I might do it. I used to do things like these in email trains
back in the day, when I was super bored and home a lot (like over Christmas
break in high school). But I haven’t done this in YEARS…



So I’ll be answering 14 questions today. I just found this
random list of questions on Pinterest and only read a few, so I’ll be
improvising quite a bit. Let’s go.



He has mental issues.

Was working the other day and there was a woman talking to a man in a booth about some other man -- presumably her boyfriend or ex. I was sweeping around, and trying not to overhear, but she was kinda loud.At some point, the man kicked into "bros before hoes" mode and began to defend the man's behavior.She responded, "There's no excuse for his actions..."And I thought, "Go girl."But then she finished her thought, "There's no excuse for his actions, he has mental issues."Me, "🤔😐😒😑."
