Not that it is terribly significant, but this blog is moving. The old address will continue to direct you to the updated content.

I'm moving up.

Janet Reid had a blog post some time ago about mis-matched email addresses. For example, . The point was the address did not convey a sense of being "professional" about writing.

Fine. I'm not Janet but she's right in the degree of professionalism displayed. Sure, Susan may be the next J.K. Absolutely. Everyone starts somewhere.

With very little effort, you don't have to look like you're still in somewhere.

So, I'm now I'll be moving this over to that hosted domain sometime shortly as I manage the configuration game.

Yes, my domain is a pen name. Why? I'm a private bastard first. Second, I share a name NASCAR driver. Now, I don't want someone looking for my online presence and be confused about an overwhelming desire on my part to turn left all day long.

SO, branding: owning my domain.

Lastly, I entered a little contest this weekend. Just a 100 word bit on Janet Reid's blog. It is however my first of those sorts of bits. It was fun for a diversion. I cut the entry of a short story from last year into the duty for the entry. We'll see. I'm nowhere, now. How can being ignored change that?

Now, I have to get back to the plot of my WIP. I want to write the last chapter this week and map the middle so that I can sketch characters and their connections more fully.

I'm feeling good about pressing forward with this one. I will return to the on-ice collection of short stories as this WIP passes from concept to draft.

I felt good about buying the domain. It felt like a commitment. It made me feel confident.

I hope you feel that way, too.
