I’ve been considering a pen name, so I went looking for some previously written articles on the topic. Here are some article examples, which give pros and cons for using a pen name:
I personally want to keep genre writing separate, so I’m choosing to use a pen name. This also means that the items I’ve self-published may need to be updated and re-posted with the new pen name.
But I continue to hesitate, as the last article had a good point:
Two Twitter profiles, two Facebook pages, two Google+ profiles, two websites… do you want to do all that?
The morale of the story. . .
- You too may have good reasons (or poor ones) for choosing to use a pen name
- Either way, keep writing!!
