Blogging from A to Z: Day 16 – Pen Names

Hey all! Things are getting really crazy with the end of the month coming up, and my last weeks in school, it’s getting nuts! Today’s post is a short one, but I’m curious to know what you all think. Today’s letter is the letter “P” so I decided to pick the phrase Pen Name.

A pen name is a fictional name that a writer uses to hide and/or protect their identity. I used to use a pen name when I had an old account on fictionpress many many moon ago…. Now I know this post is a short one… the shortest I’ve done, but I want to know what you all think of using pen names? Are they a good idea? What about for new authors? Especially those afraid of criticism? Comment and share, because I am very interested in this!
