How To Torture The Hopeful Writer

11 Feb

Okay, guys. I’ve gone and done it. I got myself a website. I’m still working on it, though, and it is a nightmare. I figured I’d use WordPress because, hey, I already have a blog so I know how it works. Well, no. It was a real struggle and I’m still not sure I want it this way a 100%. It’s probably because I want it to feel less like a blog and more like a website, though I do at some point want to transfer this blog over there as well. I tried lots of different templates and none of them give me that AHA feeling. At times like these I wish I had a magic wand. And many, many other times.

It’s important to have your own website, though. I hear this many times, and have never disagreed. It looks professional and I’m sure it will be worth it. But for now, I’m complaining. I’d rather play with my characters than spend an entire day on my laptop doing Other Things. The horror. Especially since I then go back to another template and start all over again. I just want it to be perfect and I have been dreaming of my own (perfect) website for so long. My hope is a fragile waterballoon, about to burst.

If anyone has tips or wants to share their website for inspiration, feel free! My muse apparently only shows up when novels are involved, and occasionally with tweets. Wish me luck and if you don’t hear from me, it means that the Website Demons have gotten to me and even my pet dragons couldn’t save me.
