I would probably use a pen name. I want to right books about lesbian relationships. They wouldn't be anything smutty, but I work as a teacher/tutor with young kids. I am scared that if parents find out that I write lesbian books, it would cause a scandal.

But if I ever end up writing about something else, or if I get out of this profession, maybe I will consider using my real name.

I would use a pen name, I have introverted tendencies....
Not sure what the pen name would be though but something with "Ichi" I'm sure. Aha

Unless I wrote something worthy of being ashamed of, I'd use my initials and last name.

I'd probably try to insist using a nickname of sorts that I can later add in ' ', if that's even possible? I don't know much about regulations in these things but it seems there's nothing against it, even if it's not common.

I would use part of my real name, but into a different language.

So my real name, turned japanese or something like that.
