End-of-year festivities (Champagne! Dance parties! Chocolate!) coupled with beginning-of-year vacation (DisneyWorld! Beaches! Sunshine!) meant a brief hiatus from this blog. Despite having a lingering post-vacay hangover, I am looking forward to settling back into a more routine writing/editing pattern. I don’t want to get too rusty because I plan on having lot of projects on my plate this year.
First up, I think I have to change the name of this blog. I gave the concept a lot of thought and although I’m happy to turn up at the top of Google’s search, I recently ran into some confusion from people who thought I was affiliated with writers workshops in Canada and Austin, Texas and a video game writer. Although it appears that one similarly-named blog hasn’t been updated since 2009, the last thing I want to do is encroach on anyone else’s territory, even accidentally. Do you think a name change is necessary?
I maintain another blog that uses my full name in its URL so that’s out (unless I change that one which just the thought of causes anxiety). But there are a million variations on how my name can be used and it might be a good idea to more obviously link my name with my writing. As you can see, I am completely perplexed right now. It looks like I’ll need your help and I’m totally open for suggestions here.
Off to brainstorm…
