Today marks day 5 in the October Platform Challenge. Yesterday, as I spent the day at the football game and Joe’s Crab Shack, it’s time for me to get caught up. This was rather weird to me, as I don’t have anything (other than this tiny blog) published, and with my wedding and a name change on the horizon, I wasn’t sure if I should go with my name now or what it will be come May. I sound like I’m rambling, so let me clarify.
Day 4, the challenge was to Claim Your Domain. In other words, claim myself in a web address so when I do publish, people can find me. As I don’t know when I’ll be working on the site, I wasn’t sure if I should go with what my married name will be. Or maybe I’ll write under my maiden name…I still haven’t decided. (I’ve even toyed with the idea of a pen name, but figured all that could wait until I had actually completed my novel.)
Day 5’s (today’s) challenge was easier. Join Facebook. Well, I already have the facebooks, but I like have my feed be private. So I created an “writer” page (I feel weird calling myself an author. In my mind, that’s someone who has already published a book.) So, if you’re interested, you can find my [under construction] writer page at http://www.facebook.com/ElizaWinklerWriter. This was easier to use my current name, as I can change it once and I will do that once Dylan and I are married.
