First off, this is all Carl E. Reed’s influence. He it is who started calling us motley scriveners. I just happened to notice that the phrase was available as a domain name.
And now we own a catchy domain name & it can be useful. We could rename our current Critique Exchange page “The Motley Scriveners” and point the domain name to it.
Mimi Speike has volunteered to create The Motley Scriveners page. On that page could be links to a separate webpage for each of us. We could each use our page in different ways: Start a conversation, feature our writing, solicit critique partners &/or ACR readers, announce a book release, request reviews -we could use that page any way the writing life moves us at the time.
These pages could also help the Writers Co-op because Motley Scriveners may naturally link to their Co-op page from their own website or blog or social media platform. The extra links might elevate us in search engine algorithms and may even bring in new members. I mean, who wouldn’t want to identify as a Motley Scrivener? We may have to sell T-shirts.
The above is only one suggestion. Let’s use the comments section to discuss this and other ideas.
(And feel free to inveigh venomously against Carl’s cartoonish lambasting of worthy wordsmiths.)
