this is one thing that alot of writers "struggle" with; choosing your Pseudonym or Pen
My Given Name is Scott David
Rankins, I hate my middle name of David
because there were too many people with that name during my School Years. When I graduated from High School, I created a fictional Genealogy for my characters and the Great Grandfather of my Villain was named Pyrrhus Emery
Coal which means Fire Powered Stone (loosely)
Well I'm thinking that when I do finish my novel and try to get it published the Editors would want to change my name... the newest one I was thinking of is Chris
Jenkins because one of my neighbors thinks my name is Chris
(from Family Guy
) and Jenkins sounds better with that Given Name.
What are your opinions?
