Prosateur

Starting a blog is sort of like having a child.

You worry about the pain of the birth, you fret about the expenses and you fear it may get bullied. And I happened to give mine a very pretentious name.

Why Prosateur?

Firstly, most names having any remote connection to “writer” have been taken on WordPress, and I am not a fan of having an entire army of numbers after the name. Secondly, I am and will always be a lover of old words. According to Merriam-Webster, “prosateur” was first used in 1796 and has its etymological roots in Latin. Having said that, I am not adverse to newer words and my speech is often a Frankenstein’s monster mix of older words and trendier lingo.

And with that weird mixture of linguistics and a reference to literature, welcome to Prosateur.
