With some of her saved up allowance, my granddaughter, Olivia, recently bought a journal and special pen.  Once home, she asked her mom to write the name ‘Brenda Myers’ on a small piece of paper and  tape the paper to her pen.  When Elizabeth asked why, Olivia replied something about learning that writers have pen names.  And so she had chosen the name Brenda Myers for her new pen.

Yes.  That’s right. A pen name.  I just might have to give one of my pens a name too.  Stay tuned.
