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!!
