Name Chosen

As you can see, I've chosen a new name for my blog. I was thinking of running a contest to pick a name, but one just came to me suddenly the other day so here we are.

Musings is perfect because that's what these posts are.

So with that task complete, I am going to focusing on completing the draft of Book 5 this week and next.

So far, the draft stands at 43000 words. I'm shooting for at least 60000 words. So it's a race against time. I'll give an update in a few weeks to let everyone know about my progress.

Keep writing everyone.

My Blog Needs a New Name

I've finally managed to cobble together over a hundred pages of poems. So I've decided to release them in a single collection.  The book is available from booksellers online and from the publisher, ManaSoft Books directly, at http://manasoftbooks.com/pimp.php.

The title of the collection is Paraphernalia in My Pocket. Since that's also the name of this blog, I need to change the blog's name to avoid confusion. I suppose it would've been easier to give the poetry collection a different name, but the title was always reserved for my poetry going back to my college days and the first collection I turned in to my poetry professor. Then, I had about ten poems. Now I have more like 70 or 80 poems.

So you might be wondering why I named the blog with the title of my poetry collection. Well, at the time, back in 2010 when I started this blog, I wasn't sure I'd ever release a collection of poetry. I didn't have as many poems then. And frankly blog posts are like poems: they are little bits of ideas that float around in my head. It seems fine at the time.

But times change and now I need a new name. So if any of my readers want to suggest a title, I'll send you a free audio version of my novel, Aure the Topaz. Send your suggestions to me at rfeitelberg@gmail.com.

Keep writing everyone.
