As a recent English graduate, I have just started applying for jobs and I am worried about the image I have projected with my pseudonym personality. Basically, I've had so many names over the years and two years ago I felt like I had finally found what I am--Sara Psychedelic. However, for the people who don't get what I am about/what I'm trying to accomplish they have pushed and pushed for me to reconsider because 1) The connection Psychedelic has to drugs and 2) It isn't professional like a boring normal pseudonym that sounds like a real name (no offense to anyone who uses this tactic. Stephen King writes good stuff, but I think even his name is lame)
I feel like I am at a stand still right now. After trying to get a job as a writer and failing to even get emails saying "we are moving on with the process blah blah", it makes me wonder if I have intimidated people, and if I should really change my name. I am honestly afraid to put in more jobs because thus far and all of this pushing has lead me to constant questions and even more of an identity crisis/anxiety problems. Sara Psychedelic feels like me, who I've been for a very long time...
Anyone out there who can give advice? Hearing from experienced writers would help even more.
How would a hiring committee know that this was one of your pseudonyms?
When I provide links in applications/resumes, which I'm not sure if I should do. I have heard that if you don't, it lessens the chance the employer will consider you.

I want to start writing a blog or articles on here, but I would prefer to not use my actual name. However, I am unsure as to how that would affect payment. Thank you for your assistance.

If you are a ghost writer (with a pen name), how do you go about defending your work when it is stolen?
