What's In A Pen Name? Choosing The 'Write' Pen Name For Your Writing
When I chose alwritetea as my pen name, I wanted something that was clever, not too simple, yet easy to remember. Surprisingly few have commented on my pen name, so I take that as either; 1. No one gets it (alwritetea = think 'alrighty') combining my love of writing and for tea all in one shot. Or 2. I haven't produced enough content to warrant a response on something as trivial as the name I chose to write under. I realize a pen name is a very personal choice, and something you should give serious thought to.
Don't forget, your pen name is an extension of yourself, a representation of who you are and the image you want to project. Project a positive image into the minds of your readers to encourage reader loyalty and create a following. People will only take you as seriously as your name and work suggest.
