What's in a name? Coming out of the writing closet

I'm a private kind of person. Like borderline secretive and downright reticent. I don't like people watching me do things; I'd rather be a bit more confident in what I'm doing before I share it with anyone else.

So when I started writing I didn't mention it to anyone. I'd written 40,000 words of my first novel before I told my husband, and even then I guarded my words closely. He still hasn't read ANYTHING I've written (though to be fair, I'm doing him a favour with novel#1 :D)

I've been slowly coming out of the writing closet for a couple of months now, and part of that is losing the anonymity that I'd been using like a kid with a comfort blanket (the small pink creature holding the small pink creature in the pic to your right made me think of that!)

So I've changed the name of my blog to my name. And I'm Tweeting with that name too. And I like it!

How am I going to feel if/when my book is published, and anyone anywhere can see all of the words I wrote and see my story, all new and naked?

I'm going to feel like this :)


  1. Ha, it was only a matter of time 'till you came out to the world. Wearing a closet doesn't do much to flatter the figure.

  2. It's about time you stepped into the well deserved spotlight. So siked for you and the journey you are about to embark on. :)

  3. Thanks ladies. Trying to cling to that rainbow picture amidst these hefty re-writes!


Please prove you are a robot. I'll be disappointed if you aren't.
