I'm all about name changes

It's raining raining raining. I love it.

I have alphabetized my links list. First is my website, of course (which I updated in a few tiny, unimportant ways) and then three markets. Then two agents whose blogs are entertaining. Then a few sort of writing-related sites I like. Then we come to my ever-growing list of blogs I read, some of them fellow writers, some of them just people whose blogs I've come across and find amusing or interesting or fun. And then Mr. Typewriter, because they gave me permission to use a picture of one of their typewriters on my blog. I apologize for linking to a site that plays music, but what can you do?

I'm thinking of changing my blog's name. Noisy Typewriter is pretty stupid. I mean, it's not like I write political commentary or anything. I'd like it to relate to my writing a little better, or at least be fantasy-related, but I can't think of anything that's even dumber than Noisy Typewriter. I'd appreciate any suggestions, no matter how silly, because they might spark a better idea.

Er, of course I should have written "can't think of anything that isn't dumber than Noisy Typewriter." I'll leave the original standing, because it is actually pretty funny.

You deserve a linkback, Katherine! No begging required.

Thanks, lol!

I wondered why Mr. Typewriter was on your link list - I thought he was maybe your guy or something (if he's really, really old I apologise). And because of that I thought it was really cute that you were both 'typewriters'. Does that make sense?

Re your title - can you play on something to do with your Stag novel.

I have no idea who Mr. Typewriter is, to be honest. When I was building this blog last fall I searched for good typewriter pictures and found his site--he sells refurbished antique typewriters, which is a noble cause. He could be 1,000 years old for all I know.

I like the idea of linking the blog title in with my stag novels. I'll have to come up with some ideas at work today, thanks.
