Any surprise I named my website, "norvaljoe.com"?
I started writing five years ago with my first entry to the 100 Word Stories Weekly Challenge, which is now at http://wwwoneadayuntilthedayidie.com. It seemed that most people who participated used some kind of pseudonym. I didn't know, at the time, that a lot of the people participating were from Second Life, and those were their character's names. But I went ahead and used my alter ego of many years and submitted my story under the name of Norvaljoe.
Two weeks later, I tried to change to my real name, but Lawrence Simon, who ran the weekly challenge, just wouldn't let it die. Since that time I have usually referred to myself as Philip 'Norvaljoe' Carroll when writing, allowing readers, or listeners, both old and new to recognize me.
Please bear with me as I learn to make this website more beautiful. It's taken me three weeks to get this far. So, it may be a while before it looks truly refined.
