There are two choices to having an author's website: having and not having. I am not Salinger. I will be having.
The next choice is doing it yourself vs. paying someone Vast Sums to do it for you. I had been trending in the Vast Sums direction.
No more. Because (1) Vast Sums, and (2) some reptilian part of my brain recently reminded me that I went to both art school and design school. Which makes the Vast Sums angle worthy of ridicule.
So in a week, when I have returned from various and sundry peregrinations, I shall sit down at the G5-- which is working on shared scientific computing projects and really does not appreciate being bothered by its owner-- and begin work on my new website. I shall shuffle my screenwriting website over to kullervo.com and take over loreleiarmstrong.com for my new author's site.
Sounds so confident, doesn't it? As though I remember how I created the screenwriting website in the first place. I seem to recall that it took every last brain cell in my head, and there are far fewer of them now.
The first thing I shall do is upgrade the G5 to Leopard. With complete confidence.
P.S. I shall also redesign this blog, because yeah...
