The new interface of this blog is under way.
The background – the theme – will change. The current is based on the name of my company - Mountain Wind – but since it is not a name often mentioned and is something more for my self-esteem than have much of practical function in my interface towards the world, I think there is room for something more catching.
The new background will consists of images from my stories. I’ve done several sketches of characters figuring in my portfolio. When painted, scanned and merged into a unit, I’ll think it will be more attractive and say more about my work than the current.
Then I’ll have the situation that I have more to write about than screenwriting. The title “Me, a writer of movie scripts” will be changed. The url will remain to keep things practical. I have a few ideas for new title:
“Me, writing stories”
“Me, a storyteller”
“Me, telling stories”
I think I like the middle best: “Me, a storyteller”.
It is important that there is a “Me” first, because this blog is about me. It is not a general-good-advice-site, nor a blog by someone who by her name alone can build an audience. This is me talking, telling, writing, what I like and think. I don’t think I should pretend something else.
And I am a storyteller.
Do I write stories – the first idea for a title? Most times, but not always. Do I tell stories – the third idea for a title? Yes, but the stories are not told here on the blog; here I tell you how I tell them.
If you have any suggestions I’m interested.
Then I’ve been thinking about tagging my blog entries with an image, like I do with “A word”. A “post-it” in the corner with an image quickly telling what kind of project the blog entry is about. After all there will be movie scripts, a novel and a graphic novel to begin with. I will probably need some kind of flag to differ the posts visually. As far as I know, Blogger does not support the entries to have different templates for different blog entries, but I’ll check into that.
