Here I am again, reinventing my (writing) self online. And enjoying it, much to my amazement. I’ve been dragged kicking and screaming into this technological world, but somehow I seem to be surviving. So far.
Things surely have changed since I first started out, with no real idea of what I wanted to do. The technology makes it easier for techno-phobes like me not to drown in an ocean of bits and bytes. And now I have a better idea of what I want to do with my site.
To that end, I have basically scrapped my old sites. None had my name on them, which at the time I didn’t know was important (the Blog Roll on the right has two of them, Original Blog and Susan T. Creations, in case you’re curious or want to see my old stuff). But I do love the title of my original blog, so I kept it: Woman of 1,000 Words. That’s my nickname in my family – guess I talk a lot! – and I’m no Hemingway in my writing, either. So, I’m keeping that name, just revamping the subject matter of the blog.
So, you’ll find a page here called “Woman of 1,000 Words” that will contain my story-idea blog postings only. They’re great fun, oodles of ideas complete with pictures. I’m hoping they’ll get your writing juices flowing. I’ll post one of those every Thursday at 3:00 p.m. Pacific time. All other info will go down the center of my home page: what I’m writing, conundrums I’m trying to solve, book signings, good books I’m reading, poetry, rants, etc. – whatever strikes my fancy. No rhyme or reason to subjects or post dates for home page stuff. Just whatever, whenever. But a definite weekly schedule for “Woman of 1,000 Words.”
Time now to go back to my YA novel, a new genre for me. Quite a learning experience. I somehow have to get my male protagonist across a very dangerous meadow and into an even more dangerous hut. With magicks involved…
See you soon!
I think I’ll be “Man with a Picture!” I’m not artistic but can hold a picture and think a lot of words about it. And when I say “a lot” I mean a whole lot. Words and pictures just darting around having no significant connection. You can’t even make prose of it.
That’s what the AD in ADHD does for you. 🙂
“Man with a Picture” – I love it, Greg! And just give me your darting, unconneted words and pictures. I can make connections between anything. Mom always said my imagination was “hyper.” Comes in handy at times…LOL Be sure to check back every Thursday for your weekly dose of “picture.” And hopefully you’ll find some connections with my words, too, crazy-wild as they may be.
