From my very first post I wanted to pay homage to the speech which inspired the title of my blog, Ain't I a Woman? by Sojourner Truth. Such a beautiful speech, such a beautiful name, such a beautiful woman. It is one of my favorite pieces. I strive to emulate this style in my own work. Poetic and powerful. Honest and unafraid. Memorable. And I like brevity. It too is beautiful. This is the standard I wish to be held to as I explore the question with you ~ ain't I a writer?

I Got A Name...

      I got a nice mention in this article.

      This weeks primary accomplishments were mostly more of the shameless self promotion that is required of writers these days. I bought my domain name. Yup, I did. And now I have an authors web site under construction.

      One of the things I constructed is a name. Yup, I did. I decided to use a pen name, since really I am just getting started. I have a personal connection to the pen name, but also wanted to use one for practical purposes. And, the truth is, I think my real name sounds dorky, and dated.

      Now if I could just overcome all of these technical hurdles. Could really use a construction worker to come to my rescue....
