Hmmm…that’s a really good question. I guess I have started to worry about what “Elle” writes because yes, my relationships with others on here are very real and she/ me have a reputation. It can get convoluted, which I don’t like.
On the other hand, I don’t worry too much about what Elle writes because it wouldn’t be the end of the world if someone found out it’s me writing. Writing under a pen name has helped me test the waters before I lept into the deep end, but the more I write, the more comfortable I feel about what I’m producing and my readers’ reactions to it.
I hope that makes sense! It’s a tangled web, I guess.
