Writing My Life

Now and Then

A failure to launch!

Oh, this has been PAINFUL! I think The Write Groove’s URL represents the 4th attempt to create a catchy global address that a WordPress blogger hadn’t already dreamed up.  I  have 5 blogs registered under my user name. Yes, 5! I am NOT blogging responsibly. I am nervously waiting for the WP police to pull me over and issue a ticket for such reckless behavior. I imagine they usually issue a warning first, but I was racking up web locations at such a furious rate that they didn’t have a chance to stop the madness before it turned to mayhem.

I wonder if this stuttering start represents subconscious fears about becoming a serious writer. Not that I DON’T take writing seriously. I do. Not that I DON’T write a lot already. I do. (Good grief, remember I host 6 freaking blogs! 5 WP and 1 Blogger. 2-going-on-3 working blogs and 3 misfires.) 

I suppose I consider published writers as serious. The rest of us are merely wannabe serious/published writers.

On the other hand, it is important to feel good about your URL and your blog title. I know the frustrations of owning a lame global address. It’s like living on Burps Blvd. in Belchertown, Massachusetts, and you’re “upside down” in your investment and can’t afford to move. (I just walked away from 3 addresses rather than attempt short sales. Totally irresponsible. Does WordPress ever foreclose upon blog properties?)

Another challenge was picking the right template. I swear I have WP’s choices memorized. And I PREVIEWED them ALL. More than once. I’m not savvy enough to do the CSS thing, but “Light” works well, I think.

All right, I’ve put it off long enough. I hereby dedicate this blog to all things writing. Hopefully, The Write Groove will get me in the writing groove – a writing warm-up of sorts. AND I also anticipate that bloggers who have similar desires to publish something wonderful will join me in this effort. (Fingers are crossed.) Friends, colleagues, and strangers, amateurs, professionals, published or UNpublished authors,  and of course, DREAMERS – all are welcome!

Lift off.
