What do you call a blogger who wants to write?

What do you call a blogger who wants to write? A rejection waiting to happen.

If you are still reading this blog, I could use some advice.

Before I get to that though, there is something all of you should know about real writing vs. blogging. It is harder. There is also no way of knowing how bad of a writer you are because publishers don’t like to discriminate. They hate all of us equally. Maybe hate is too strong of a word. Their rejection letters are rather polite…

Anyway, thanks for all your comments on my last post. I really appreciate your kindness, but I’m not replying to them because I would probably get sucked right back in to the blogosphere.

Okay, advice…I’m trying to think of a pen name. I made the names in the following poll with the letters in my real name, but I am open to suggestions for something else. I kind of would like a gender neutral name because men are better writers, so I want to fake being one. (Don’t be offended ladies, after all, God is a man and look how well his Book is doing. Also, many of my favorite authors are men, although I have a few women authors I adore).

I chose Link as the first name for these because of the video game character. My son will approve. Like I said, suggestions are welcome, with or without the letters here.

  1. I voted for the most poular one. That surprises me. I never do that. But it is the only one that really sounds real… kind of German… try hyphenating it. Link Fanher-Baker. Sounds pompous. People like that. That is why my pen ame will be A. H. Browne. Sounds stuffy and professorial. Link is also a good… uh… link to your blog life… because we use links… see…

    • Thanks PMAO. Hyphenating it is a good idea. I will keep you all updated occasionally. Right now I have submitted to about 20 publishers. I need to do lots more. I have only been rejected from a few so far. I have two big books I’m working on mostly when I am depressed. I also have written and submitted a new children’s book about my daughter riding me to school (with the powerchair) we have some good stories to tell. I would like to make that a series of children’s books. How is your novel going?
