Good Old Whatsisname

I've been thinking about changing the blog name for awhile now. To be honest, I was always a little bit on the fence about the original title.

Full Throttle and Fuck It was an experiment. I wanted to keep I real-time diary of the writing of one of my novels. A record, for myself and anyone else who cared to watch, of the sustained blitz* that goes into a first draft. The title was a way to describe my working method.

Since I finished that first draft, 'Full Throttle' doesn't seem to apply as much. I mean, yeah, I'm going hard again on a new first draft, circling warily around the second draft of that other book, and drawing and painting up a storm. Oh yeah, and leading a rich personal life.

But Full Throttle? I dunno...

Right now, Wayfaring Stranger is up at the top of the page, on account of I *love* that song, and it does describe my life and the philospophy behind it. Other possible titles might roll out over the next few days or weeks, too...

*'Sustained blitz' sounds like something of an oxymoron, like 'assistant manager' or 'airline food'...

Full Throttle was pretty cool. I suppose I could get used to Wayfaring Stranger. If I named my blog after my writing style it would have to be something like "Fits and Drabs."
