I'm thinking, starting today, of using a pseudonym with my writing.

Ed Wyrd.

Huh? What do you think? My real name is Edward. It would be Ed Wyrd.

I write fantasy, some horror, wyrd, weird, huh?

Get it? Huh?

C'mon. It worked for Lemony Snickets.

Why not Ed Wynd, as in head wind?

They might think I'm Keenan's son.

I should have put up a poll.

Here:

Ed Wyrd. I like it!
Ed Wyrd. What are you weird?
Ed Bloom. Now you're on to something.
Ed Eggplant. Yes!

Hmm. This isn't going exactly to plan. I seem to be the butt of the jokes instead of the instigator.

You guys aren't taking into account that I'm very sensitive and easily hurt on Mondays. :cry:

If you don't like Ed Wyrd just say so.

Ed Wynd could also be mistaken for the classic comedian Ed Wynn (Uncle Albert in Disney's Mary Poppins as a reference)--but that might not be a bad thing either.

Was he related to Keenan?

MISTER Ed.

Thanks for dredging up that painful childhood memory, tiny.


I like it.

Hmm. *visualizes it on a book cover*

Naw. It would have to be in teeny tiny letters. Ed Wyrd can be in huge block letters.

What's wrong with the real name? Or just use initials for the first and middle name...like I plan to (only cause I'm not particularly fond of my middle name...thanks Grandma!). Otherwise, Ed Wyrd sounds pretty cool.

What's wrong with the real name?

Because my real name has some bad associations with it. Ed Gein.

That's darkly funny, considering you write horror, too.

Seriously, I like Ed Wyrd.

Too bad you don't write westerns. Then you could be Ed M. Offatdpass

Seriously, I would wonder whether Ed Wyrd would be pronounced as rhyming with Ed-ward or with Ed-weird. Maybe making it Ed Wyrde would look and sound better?

I definitely think you should be funky and spell Ed "Edd". How about Edd Wired, Edd Rhoum (like Max Headroom), Eddfull O'Nails.

Ed Wyrd is a fine pen name.

This is what I get for not posting in a serious forum.

Maybe Ed Edd, because two Eds are better than one.

I like Ed Wyrd. My pal is writing and she wants to use a pen name. Get this - not bad or good, but she is a bit of a prankster. She wants to use:

Sue D. Nimm

She's thinking no one will get that.

Well, that's good then. That sort of what I was going for because Edward is pronounced Ed Word and I've always sort of pondered that as a psuedonym, but thought it was too... obvious?


Sue D. Nimm

She's thinking no one will get that.I like it and I'll bet that only a few people would get it, mostly us writerly types.

Ed Wyrd = Ed werd

no, not Ed Weerd

and they YOU come along dobi, and make it Ed Wired!

Mr. Ferret - had you nothing better to do today than give me a laughing headache?
