Prompt #169 Pen Name
A pen name, also called a nom de plume or a literary double, is a pseudonym adopted by an author and printed on the title page or by-line of their works in place of their real name.
There are a few reasons why I choose May More as my Pen Name. Which I will reveal in my own post for this prompt. But I have often wondered about other writers in our community. Why or how did they choose their Pen Name?
So, a few questions to get you thinking…
- Is your Pen Name in some way similar to your real name?
- Why did you decide on that particular name?
- What are the reasons you decided to use a nom de plume rather than your real name?
- Do you have any other Pen Names? Or do you also write under your actual name?
If you don’t actually use a Pen Name or simply don’t fancy disclosing such personal details why not write a short story using the prompt to inspire you?
If you want to take part and don’t have a blog please contact me and the meme can host your post 😉
Announcement ~ Up until now I have used the second prompt of the month to hand over to a new blogger. This gives them a chance to get a feel for running a meme and also a chance to promote their blogs. I am going to widen my reach and include people within the writing community who don’t have a blog, or those who have perhaps taken a break and are returning to blogging. May More.
