As a writer do you prefer using a pen name or real name? Why?
I use a pen name called Tynamite, because I'm the only person in the world with my name, so because I am cyber-skeptical hence I care about my privacy, I don't like the idea of someone being able to type my name in Google, and see everything I've ever done online. So I keep my writing under a pen name so people can't stalk me online and enter my real life. Loads of people have the same name as someone else, so they can afford to put their real name on everything they do, but I'm cyber-skeptical and don't want stalkers, as there are all sorts of crazy people on the internet. ;)
Which genre do you normally write? Are you comfortable going out of your comfort zone?
I write realistic stories about urban life. People say that I'm good at writing, but as with everything good, I don't want to be complacent and be the one trick pony person, that person who is typecast who can only do one thing and not any other thing. I've wrote a sitcom episode, ho
