You'd think it's not that big a deal in the grand scheme of things. But in fact, it can mean the difference between getting a new subscriber or not.
I realize the irony in the fact that I managed to change my Substack name AGAIN just before this post was prescheduled and didn't have time to add it here because I was too busy creating the logos and wordmark, etc in Canva and Photoshop (respectively...) but I hope 🤞🏾 that I am able to keep this name "Pen to Paper Stories" for all of 2023? Let's check back in December and see what name I have...
I thought of Adventures in Secrecy with T Van Santana in less than a minute. I knew I would overthink it and that it would haunt me if I didn't like it, so I tried to quickly think of something I could live with. I don't know how fitting a title it is 😄 but I'm pretty happy with it. I think titles are mainly there to help us stay engaged with the work.
My main Substack (Speculations from the Wide Open Spaces) is carried over from my WordPress blog. I wanted something different from my former LiveJournal, which was something like On Skiing, Writing and Horses. Or something like that. Plus, right now, anyway, I'm writing it from the wide open spaces of Eastern Oregon, and I'm a science fiction and fantasy writer, so...speculations.
My fiction blog is simply Martiniere Stories because I'm serializing stories from the assorted Martiniere multiverses.
