I did. I did say that, and not just once. I do have a lot of trouble naming things. But today’s question is surprisingly easy to answer.
“What is the meaning behind your blog name?”
I’ve had blogs before. They had names. But they were (shh, don’t tell) mom blogs. When I started this blog, I knew I wanted something different. Yeah, my kids were bound to show up sometimes, but this was MY space, my room to grow and explore and talk about other things that were important to me.
Things like writing. Didn’t see that coming, did you? 😉
I’d just sent a draft of a novel out to the few friends and family members who offered to read it (including the far fewer who actually did, of course). I was still hemming and hawing over whether to keep the prologue (a different monster from the one in the tabs up there) in the story. I decided “no,” and sent out a message… to disregard the prologue.
It works, right? This blog is a new space for me, and everything that came before… well, I still like a lot of my old posts, but they have nothing to do with this. Post one here, last October, was the beginning of the story, and what happened before that was all prologue.
I’ve been quite happy with my blog’s name, even if it now makes me cringe when I see the word spelled “prolog” (“dialog” also makes me wince).
Now, if only naming books was so simple…
