Good Evening One & All,
Shakespeare wrote in Romeo & Juliet, "What's in a name?...A rose by any other name would smell as sweet."
Disney talked about names in Aladdin in the lyrics, "Better get a nom de plume." (the song, "One Jump").
So, for a writer, what does a nom de plume (or, pen name) say about the author? It could be a different spelling of the author's name, it could be a name that has a significance. They could keep their first name, but change the last, or change both.
A pen name is also the name a writer will write under for his or her books. The name that his or her readers will recognize them. The name on the autographs and the one where people will say, "Oh yes, that's so and so, they wrote..."
Some authors write under their own names. Others, for a variety of reasons, choose a pen name.
What about you? Are you considering a pen name? What have you looked at when thinking of your nom de plume?
For myself, I'm considering something easy to remember, something that is significant to me.
Have A Satisfying Sunday!
