Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thanks a bunches.

Let say you wrote a best selling novel. But before that would you use your real name or some pen name? If you did use a pen name, what would it be?


My Turn:

I would use my real name.


What about you? Enjoy!!!



Don't forget to list the pen name that you want!

I would use a unisex pen name.

Can't think of one right now, though.

I would use my real name. I have no reason to hide it.

I have written in the past (not a novel...yet; semi-professional small-press pieces) under a pen name and I'll most likely continue to do so with the projects I'm working on now.

I'd go with a pen name. Not because I'm ashamed of my work or anything like that (I'm actually very confident when it comes to my writing, artwork, etc.; you kind of have to be more or less in order to survive as an artist in my opinion. Even if your work isn't perfect, so long as you're both satisfied and happy with it then it's fine) but personally, I'm not the kind of person who can handle fame or the things that come with it, so I'd probably be as anonymous as humanly possible. If I had to go to signings or something of the like I'd just wear a mask or something to further hide my identity. (Though I feel that'd just draw even more people to me out of curiosity. Regardless, I don't feel super comfortable having my every word and action known by the masses.)

When I was younger, I got published under a pen name because the writings were of a mature nature.

I will probably continue going with a pen name, because I'd rather the audience focus on my writing than who I am.
