Re: Pen Name
Oh. So you want to be a psychologist that takes care of patients? Well then don't worry about a pen name. Unless you literally become the next J.K. Rowling, there will be no problem. ...And even then, that would help your psych career. Remember, patients come to YOU for help and to talk about their lives and their problems. If they get star struck and can't just treat you like a professional, then that isn't your problem... And it's also unlikely. If they do the whole "OMG YOU WRITE TEH NOVELS!" then so long as you treat them like you're supposed to.
Hell, I've taken acting workshops and sessions with really impressive actors (Ian McKellen, for instance) and the novelty shock wears off really quickly.
Don't worry about it.
