Was Tired of Lime Green

The pastel options in my last WordPress theme drove me nuts.  I like pastels… in some things, but I prefer deeper, jewel tones. 

I also like dark blogs, but I don’t like white words on a dark background.  This theme offered hard colors, the grittier, darker feel that fits my writing more and the actual posts are on a lighter board.  Works for me.  It just takes a long, long time to get a site together, so I’d been putting it off or just settling for a change in header or two. 

It’s done for now and it’ll stay like this until I have a professional website done with an attached blog.  That’s a ways off at this point, but I have bought the domain. <g>

So, I’m going to make dinner for the family, then follow through with the tagline here.  Burn some midnight oil since I have writing time to make up and it always seems to flow better in the night hours.  In fact, I also uncluttered my workspace to better unclutter the head. 

I’m past all my surgical stuff and feeling great, so it’s time to get into that solid, rhythmic flow of a daily word count.  Besides, I need to give my wonderful, workhorse critique partnerRachel Vincent, some healthy competition and maybe… something good to read soon. 🙂

About Rinda Elliott

Writer.I love unusual stories and credit growing up in a family of curious life-lovers who moved all over the country. Books and movies full of fantasy, science fiction and romance kept us amused, especially in some of the stranger places. For years, I tried to separate my darker side with my humorous and romantic one. I published short fiction, but things really started happening when I gave in and mixed it up. When not lost in fiction, I love making wine, collecting music, gaming and spending time with my husband and two children. I’m represented by Miriam Kriss of the Irene Goodman Agency.

  1. I like how this one complements the LJ site. Works for me. 🙂

    (I sure do miss WordPress smilies!)

  2. Love the new look a lot. I like the dark and the red. Took me forever to find themes I liked for mine. My blog isn’t perfect but I like it better, the MySpace is better than it was and the website is closer to what I want. Some day, I will pay someone to do a website and have a blog attached, all in one spot.

  3. I’m glad your surgeries are behind you. I know you were eager to get back to work. 😉

    And I’m definitely looking forward to something to read…

    Good because I have a feeling I’ll be critiquing in a hurry here pretty soon. 😉

    I like it too, Carol and Heather. The font is a bit smaller than I like, but I just couldn’t find a theme with everything I want and I don’t want to spend money on custom stuff until the website is done. Want them to match. heh heh

  5. I’ll be looking forward to the result of your creative flame gnoshing on the midnight oil. Okay, that was hokie. What can I say, it’s monday? lol. Missed seeing you this weekend. We’ll have to make sure next month. 🙂

    Dear Lord woman! I miss a few days of lurking and my retinas burn thru to the back of my head when I come back!

    I do, however, like the new look. It’s more your style. Fits your writing better.
