I am leaving the lovely city of Beirut.
In a week's time, I will be on a plane to London where I will stay for a while to write too long of a document that might get me a "paper" of some sort (I think people call it a PhD). Meanwhile, I will do my best to continue with stories from there. But, lest the "Hakaya" loose their LebnesoPalestinian accent, my friend Abdul has accepted to allow some of his lovely stories to appear on this blog. I am so excited about reading more of his work (great stuff there that I am sure you will enjoy), but also to the possibilities that sharing this blog could open up. Would the stories change because two of us are publishing in the same space? Will we write less or more often? Will you guys visit this space more frequently? Will my mother stop commenting on this blog as if nobody but me is reading her words? All these remain to be answered.. but one question needs your creative juices now..
What should the blog's new name be?
It can no longer remain Muzna's Stories.. should it be "Muzna and Abdul's Stories", "Beirut Stories", "7akaya" (Arabic word meaning narrated stories as in the url)? Obviously, my own creative juices are running low at the moment (I just came back from watching a football game, what do you guys expect?) so your help is quite urgently needed with name suggestions.. and of course, the sooner we change the name, the easier it is for me to pressure Abdul to publish something.
Hope this proves to be a good transition.. and waiting for your suggestions...
