I've always wondered why authors (particularly genre writers) use pen names, and whether it's better to use a pseudonym or pen name, or if you should write under your real name. I asked all four "writers" (e.g., Jennifer) why she write under different pen names.
Only 10 rules? That should be easy to follow. I'll have a masterpiece written by the end of the month! Or not. The fascinating problem here is that every writer has different rules. Creative writing is a process of discovery and you're going to need to stumble upon your own rules as you go. Then, chances are, you'll want to break those rules as soon as they're solidified.
