Random Thoughts

It took nearly two weeks, but I’m finally on the mend. At one point I swear I was about to go insane. Night to Tuesday the universe decided that having a cold and a fever wasn’t enough, and also gifted me with stomach flu. Yep. The full package. Ever tried coughing and heaving at the same time? Don’t.

Anyway, the fever spiked at 39 degrees (102.2 F) to finally subside and is now nearly gone. Fingers crossed that it remains gone. *desperate finger twitching* Today I even plan to eat solid food! Yeah!

I did end up stopping my WoW blog, but part of me really misses it. There are things I want to write about, but I know that I seldom get around to actually doing it. Also, there are often things I want to write, but don’t feel that I can, since it’s venting, and I don’t want to offend people I play with. At times I wish I’d made my blog anonymous. Heck, at times I still want to create a new WoW blog, but with no attachment to my in-game characters. But having to get a new readership? I don’t know.. so much work.

Speaking of blogs, I really do want to get started on my writing blog. I just need to get through the planning stages. And decision making. Me and decisions… Not always a good combination!

Things to decide:

1) Use an author name as the name of the blog, or something catchy as a title?

2) Which universe to set the stories in, or have several? Looking at my various stories and universes at the moment to see if I can somehow consolidate them into something manageable.

3) If I use an author name, what should I pick? I always just simply wanted Emily Morgan, but since the domain emilymorgan.com is taken, I feel that I should pick something else. Because, yes, I want a .com domain. But do I keep the name Emily and just find another surname, or do I switch it completely?

4) I’m sure there’s more to decide, I just can’t think of anything yet. I blame the whole “being sick for nearly two weeks” for my lack of a thought process right now.

    Hmm, pen names are difficult. I’d find a phone book and open it at a random page, look at the first name you see, and choose it or something similar to it. :D

      Also, eurgh, glad you’re finally feeling better! Sounds like you got the triple whammy of sickness.

      Haha I love the idea of just opening the phone book at a random page! I’m too much of a control freak though, I feel like it has to be a name I feel is “me” somehow.

      So I guess either Emily SomethingSomething or something else I can live with. Sophie Something could work.. (my second name). Or something completely random. I do realise this process isn’t interesting to anyone but me *lol* But I work better when I put things down in writing, so please excuse me clogging up the comments and blog with this stuff!

      Maybe I should just pick a random surname starting with M! Oh… my… there are so many! http://www.surnamedb.com/Surname?alpha=M *faints*

    I think you should pick a name with which you can connect. I think ‘Saga’ is a good one.
