Why don't HubPagers use their real or pen name? When they write a novel - by werdz52? spYkeDriver?


Why not use a constant name and plan on a future of being a novelist? This would be a way to build a fanbase from the beginning. Why even create a pen name? (Like Mark Twain.) To avoid any taxes on royalties from your writing? They find out your real name eventually when you get famous (notice I use the word "when..") It seems I've made a grave error by just being... me. The nerve I have, eh? Breaking tradition and all the rules... again!

    I'll take that chance (knowing the odds are astronomical.) However , I did a lot of stage time and comedy show producing in the 5th largest city - Phoenix. Didn't even bother with hiding from the beginning. thx mgeorge.

    Thanks, Ms. Sheila. Tax questions asked with 100% tongue-in-cheek but actually glad I got a straight answer. Nice of you to take the time.

    Already Dan Miller horror writer. Only Dan W. Miller on fb, (two w/out period) only "W" on twitter.
