To pen name or not to pen name, that is my dilemma.

I wouldn’t even be thinking about it except that I’m battling with my web hosting provider because my domain name is current not mine because of a billing snafu.

I will, of course, pay to get it back if I have to, but in the meantime, I’m wondering if I could get used to writing under a different name.

What’s your opinion? Do you want to write under your own moniker or a nom de plume?

What prompts your decision one way or another?

If you are planning to write under a pen name, how did you choose it?
