Screw The Pen Name

I tried.

I tried to start writing under a new pen name. I bought a domain and got an email address and did everything except for the most important part: write.  Do you know how exhausting it is to maintain anonymity in this world of ours where every single piece of technology is interconnected? Too. Do you know how hard it is to maintain authenticity while editing everything you post to delete tell-tale details? Too. Do you know how difficult it is to market yourself like that? Guess.

So here I am.

Stalkers beware.

  1. Oh gawd yes. I tried as well. But it just wasn’t working. When I did write, it didn’t feel real. It didn’t feel like it was coming from me. Like I was holding something back from the world and with my writing. Eventually I just said screw it. I started posting publicly and openly. It feels better.
