New Design + Blog Name

My "I NEED MORE COFFEE" face.

We still have lots of snow and temperatures are in the 30's today (which is a heat wave compared to -30), but I'm dreaming of spring. And spring means a new blog design!  You may have also noticed that I changed my blog name. I've been thinking about changing for a while and I finally came up with one that I'm very fond of. Taking Dictation. It's inspired by a C.S. Lewis quote:

"I never exactly made a book. It's rather like taking dictation. 
I was given things to say."

-C.S.LEWIS


That's what it means to be an author.

I saw that there was a blog link up at The Circle and the subject this month is Blog Name Stories. Perfect timing!

THE CIRCLE LINK-UP


In other news, I'm 50,000 words into my WIP, and I've also been writing short stories in the evenings. Here's a snippet from the WWII story I'll be posting here on Monday.
