So, I've had a few names around these parts. Most recently I've been TheUnconsoled, which I got from my favourite book by Kazuo Ishiguro. I've always liked the way it sounds. But I find myself posting a lot about my dead husband and the combination of the name and my posts was giving me a big sad. I don't want to be a Debbie Downer!

So yesterday I had to write a short bio for myself for a website that's publishing some of my (racy!) writing, and I called myself a "part-time writer and full-time good-time girl". Ta da! That's the new me. 100% cheerier — and less filling!

Plus lots of fun retro imagery! Though can you see the tagline on this one? "Easy living, easy loving - until a girl of easy virtue screamed rape." Raaaaaaaaaage!


ETA: I'm going with the transitional name GoodTimeGirl(akaTheUnconsoled) for a couple of weeks so that I don't confuse people toooo much. Because frankly my posts do that for themselves - they don't need any help!
