Who the hell is this person and what does she write about? (And will you like it?)

I chose the name WriterInSoul after running a few possibilities by WordPress and not surprisingly finding all of them already taken. When I consider what I’m doing here (and by that I mean blogging on WordPress, not what I am doing in the universe, although no doubt that’ll come into play too), I believe in a sense I am revealing what I consider my truest self: in my essence I am a writer. That is what I mean by WriterInSoul. (“In my essence I am a writer” would have made an unwieldy and not particularly great or memorable blog name and to paraphrase WordPress advice: “Take heed kids! You want a name people will remember.”)

Biographically, I’m a single woman who lives in a mid-size-somewhat-urbanized city in the suburbs outside a major, large U.S. city.  I’ve spent my life in the general area. That’s right, you’ll hear no tales from me about my exotic travels or international moves. My writing is generally personal and autobiographical, although my subjects meander. I am always thinking, thinking, questioning, questioning, and my posts reflect that. That, and large doses of my particular humor. (No really!)  If you just want a quick snapshot of how I think and write, take a look at a few of my  Short Thoughts, all 100 words or less.  Want to see if I’m funny? Just go straight to the Humor  category. I write a lot about  People/relationships. In my first blog post I talk in more detail about my writing background and what made me start this blog.

I hope you’ll take a look around and see if it’s to your liking.

P.S. WordPress tells me that they post occasional ads on my blog just so’s you know. I am sorry but since I am cheap I won’t pony up the money to make them go away.

    I have pages of blog names before I arrived at the obvious one form me – and when I decided upon it – I couldn’t believe it wasn’t taken already – I like your blog name, it’s just ‘write’ 😉

      Well thanks! I think I may have been confused and didn’t realize the blog name could be different from my user name. But coming up with TWO unused names would have really taxed me. Glad you got yours. –Colette

        Sadly, I wasn’t confused – I couldn’t believe some of the names I thought of were taken – some of the names were kind of quirky…many quirky people out there – I guess that’s what makings blogging so very interesting!

    After reading your ‘boys don’t make passes’ article a few things occurred to me. Your eyelid looks fine in your picture (as eyelids go.)
    That women in glasses look attractive, sometimes more so, than those without (not that this could or should have any bearing on a woman’s reason for choosing to wear them.)
    Finally, you are funny, observant and sharp as a tack – thanks for brightening up the blogosphere.

      Ain’t you sweet?! (Sincerely, thank you. What a generous compliment. You too seem observant and not just for saying that!) I am happy to report no eyelid deformity – can’t remember what my complaint was – and agree with your take on glasses. It helps that styles are SO much improved since those of decades ago

      I’m liking what I’m reading on your blog too; more comments and likes sure to come.

    I have been enjoying your blog for quite some time now so I have nominated you for the Liebster Award. If you wish, you can look at the rules on my blog post which will pop in at about 2am EDT on 10/5. If you choose not to, that is no problem. Just to say, you have a very good blog and I enjoy the reads!

    Terrific “About” intro, Colette. I also very much enjoyed the piece about walking to your lifeguard job with your mother — and shall certainly return to read more! 😀

    Thanks for liking my reply to Running From This Place. You’ve got a nice site. I took your advice and read some of Short Thoughts. It’s amazing how you can say so much in just a few lines!

    Every once in a while when I need a great laugh I look for one of your posts but alas and alack, there has been no sightings of any posts from our dear Colette. My only thought could be that you have been on an extended vacation where wifi does not exist in some exotic locale…
