What’s in a name?

I have been pondering this question for quite a while. Should I write under a pen name, or should I stick with my legal name? Clearly, at this point I’m sticking with my legal name. At least for the purpose of this blog…

But should I? Two of my friends, lovely ladies both, are also writers – both use pen names. In fact, I only know one of them by her pen name. I’m cool with that. She is who I met, and who I am friends with. Not knowing the information on her Drivers License certainly cheapens nothing of our friendship.

I certainly will not be answering this question tonight, or any time in the near future. I am just wondering out loud, I suppose. Opinions?
