Well.. so much for posting every day with the 21 days of DW.  i'm over a week behind.  I won't bombard you with a load of answers.  I'll just pick up where I left off.


4. What do you do online when you're not on DW?
I think most of my time online is spent on Twitter.  second i go to LJ, and facebook, though I waiver between hating facebook and tolerating it just about every other day.  I like goodreads.  I also get caught up in Wikipedia.  I'll start reading about the history of Scotland and the next thing you know I'm looking at a list of all the Popes there ever were. 
and does Netflix count as online?  We usually stream through the playstation, so i'm not actually on the computer.  We use it a lot.


1. Why did you sign up for Dreamwidth?
I was looking for a new place to have a writing blog. I had one on blogspot, but I didn't like it. I found posting there to just be a pain in the butt. Plus I didn't have much of an audience. Ok... I had NO audience at all, and there really wasn't a way for me to create one without putting forth more effort than I was willing to do. While I could have started a new LJ, I didn't really want to. I liked the idea of a fresh start in a new place. I liked that DW focuses on those who create things (though you can really have it for whatever you want). I liked the format since I was used to LJ. I liked the idea of meeting totally different people, less spam, less judgment. So I closed my blogspot account and came here.

2. Why did you choose your journal name? What does it mean?
Well.. for writing/internet purposes my name is Calla.  Calla Flower.  Here I write about writing.. Therefore "Calla writes".  INTRIGUING HUH???
I'm not going to go into why my name is Calla Flower.  Suffice to say it was a silly nickname I made for myself in high school that I liked so well I kept it.  It's almost more than a nickname because I have some real life friends that call me Calla instead of my real name.   If I were ever to publish a book I would probably use that name.  I'd have to pick a different last name because Flower is a bit silly.  The jury is still out on what that last name would be.

3. Do you use other blogging sites? Why or why not?
I have an LJ, but that's completely friends locked.  If you consider Twitter a blogging site (as it has often been called "micro blogging") I'm there.  I have one personal account that's private, and one that's public (@callawrites just like here).

I feel really weird about the word "blog".  If I said I had a blog, I feel like that would imply that I have opinions on things to share, or that I had some sort of obligation to post something of significance.  Really I'm a babbler about whatever thoughts I'm having or whatever it was I did that day/week.  I kind of hate the word blog.


5. How about when you're not on the computer?
6. What do you wish people who read your journal knew about you?
7. What is your favourite community on Dreamwidth?
8. What is your philosophy on journal layouts?
9. Tell me about your default icon.
10. Pick 10 random icons from your userpics and tell me about them.
11. What features do you think Dreamwidth should have that it doesn't currently?
12. What do you consider the 10 most "telling" interests from the list on your profile? Why?
13. Do you have any unique interests on your user profile? What are they? How'd they get there?
14. What is your favourite subject to discuss on Dreamwidth?
15. What 5 things are you obsessed with currently?
16. What are you glad you did but haven't really had a chance to post about?
17. How many people on your reading list have you met IRL?
18. What don't you talk about here, either because it's too personal or because you don't have the energy?
19. What are you most interested in reading?
20. Are you involved in any fandoms? If so, what are they?
21. What's your favourite thing about Dreamwidth?
Writing is going ok.  I'm not spending as much time doing it as I should.  I still feel confident that I'll be able to get the first draft of B&B done by the deadline.  I start my creative writing class next Tuesday.  I looked online and there are only 9 people registered.  not enough to have me blend into the wood work, and too many have me feel comfortable if we need to share something we wrote.  I'm such a wimp at trying new things....

well.. it is my lunch hour.. I should be writing at least a little bit.  :)
