I, Amanda J. Capper, own a domain.


I must be important. I must be influential in my community and respected by all who know me, because I have my own domain.

During the 2012 Bloody Words conference it was impressed upon all wannabe writers that we should sell ourselves. Join FB (done.¬†Twice. One personal¬†and another for my writing colleagues), Google plus (done), Twitter (done…now I have to buy a fancy phone, I would think), Pinterest¬†(done, though I never heard of it) and Linkedin (done).

Hardest part was coming up with something witty for my profiles. Words failed me. I’ve never been so discouraged with my writing as I have lately in my efforts to become popular. And who is going to edit this site? What if, after too many peppermint schnapps shooters, I decide to blog something horribly distasteful and politically incorrect?

I’d have to blog an apology. That could take me weeks to find the words. When am I supposed to find time to finish my WIP?

Good chance this piece of nonsense will stay private forever.
