I’m thinking of changing my old pen name for a fantasy series I’ve had lined up in the future…oh, say ten years from now. However, I’ve realized for quite some time that even though I love it so much, both names have very negative meanings. First one means “blind” and the other means “lame.”
Why, oh why did I not realize this sooner, like several years ago? I wonder if I should just stick to W.D. Lady? Does it even matter if I switch genres? For example: Horror to Comedy/Fantasy with some religious elements. Actually, I take that back because I do have horror elements even in my light fantasy stories.
The more extreme example of this is Anne Rice going 180 degrees: from vampires to now writing about books with angels in them. Do people really care about that? Did she lose her fanbase, because of such a dramatic switch from Sleeping Beauty’s erotica novel to the story of Jesus Christ?
I seriously don’t want to make another author’s page on Amazon (nor deceive people about my intentions), even though I have one here on wordpress. Can an author do both: Horror & Christian? When was the last time I even updated that thing? Maybe I’ll get back and reopen The Legendary Girl site and I Love to Direct much later down the road, like maybe another ten to twenty years?
Or whenever I’m able to get all my bills paid off and my stuff reorganized… I spent so much money on my glasses, because I didn’t have insurance for eye care. God, it sucks. But I needed a good pair, since these keep falling off me. I hope this kind of investment is worth it. Still need to get my editing equipment and maybe a second job, since I’m not getting enough money at work.
I seriously hate not being able to create and upload more independent videos on youtube… I wish I had more help too… I feel so alone sometimes. Wish I had a crew member or someone passionate enough to collaborate ideas with. We’d travel to exotic scouting destinations, hire some actors, write scripts together, and so on. I hate doing everything myself, even though I like being an independent woman: writing, directing, and the works. However, it’s good to have a second opinion sometimes. Two minds are usually better than one.
Looks like I’ll be going it alone from here on in…
