Road Trip Wednesday: Penname

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link - or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.

This Week's Topic

If you couldn't use your own name, what would your pseudonym or penname be?
This is SO easy for me. In my neighborhood with the other kids, we constantly played those "name" games. You know the ones. What would your porn name be? or whatever. Some take your childhood pet's name and your mom's maiden name or such and such. We loved making up our own silly ones. The one that always stuck with me through the years has been this one: take your middle name and the street you grew up on.

That makes my pseudonym: Nicole Creed.

Ahh! I love it! I always said that would be my pen name if I ever became a famous novelist. Ha. I still might consider this, who would have foresaw this social media business though?

Hey and you never know when you may need a fake name...for you, anything. Just sayin'.


  1. Hey, it's my first RTW, too! Man, your middle-name-street-name is SO much better than mine. Lynn Springvale? I don't think I'd want to trust that person. Haha.

  2. Yay! You know what though? I can dig Springvale! It's not so bad.

  3. Hey Amanda, welcome to RTW :-)
    Nicole Creed sounds like a fun name and while I will use my "real" name when published, I used this RTW opportunity to reveal my first name ;-)
