The LiveJournal came first, many years ago when I realized that my real name was still free for taking and I snatched it up. I later made it my writing journal, in which I mostly posted my works, like poems and song lyrics. Later on I transformed it into what you see now. At the time of its creation, however, I named the journal after a short story I had written around that era. The story was called, obviously, "Hello From a Stranger", and was about a married couple that had been separated for a long period of time. When they were reunited they still loved each other, but felt like strangers in how each had changed. The story revolved around them trying to find a level of comfort between one another once again. (See, this is what I wrote in high school. What happened to me.) And since this was to be a public blog in which I would not know most of my readers, and likewise they would not know me, "Hello From a Stranger" just seemed poetic and appropriate.
When I really started rolling on the blog a couple years ago, I decided to change the name to "Musings From a Procrastinating Author", because that title just pretty much summed up what was going on. I was musing. I was a procrastinating author. Plus it has a ring to it, yeah? As for the reason why I never switched the LiveJournal name over...well, I liked the older title. And, I totally forgot. Yup.
But to clear any and all confusion...the blog's official name is Musings, and yes, I know you really care.
Because, after all, Carla cared. Thanks, Carla.
