It's not the most appealing name, it's not even clear what it means - someone who writes about snails? Studies them? Writes very slowly? Anthony Winkler gave me the name, when he told me this: "A writer does not soar like a trackless bird. She crawls like a snail and leaves a glistening trail."
I liked that.
Plus I have a soft spot for uncharismatic creatures, the ones that people wrinkle their nose at.
Of course, it's not easy to find a name that hasn't been taken for a free blog, and I'm no good at names anyway.
Snail writer it is. People won't be surprised when there are not many posts...
