I’d Like To Introduce You, To Me

About 8 months ago, I created this blog for the sole purpose of curing boredom and giving myself something to focus on rather than my ridiculous stress levels. Since I didn’t have much time to dedicate to writing, I didn’t know if it was something I was going to continue, and I wasn’t sure if anything I wrote was even partially decent, I didn’t tell anyone about my blog.
In order to keep it (in a sense) private, I decided to use a pen name. My real name is Allison. Blair King is a name chosen without really much thought. Blair is (embarrassingly) from Gossip Girl and King is from my favorite author, Stephen King.
I wanted to start using my real first and middle name. I’m going to change the name on here and my social media over to Allison Nicole. With my chapbook accepted by a publisher, I want it to be under my real name.
I strangely feel guilty for hiding my name, but it was what I needed for awhile. But now, I’m ready to claim this fully as my own.

  1. Hey Allison,
    Nice to meet to real person behind the screen writing on this blog.
    Hope to see more posts from you.
    And also Congratulations on the Chapbook.
    All the best. 🙂

    Take Care. 😀

    PS : I am also (hiding) using a screen name. Probably, it might take some time to come out of this anonymity or perhaps I will continue to be anonymous. I still haven’t decided yet. So, I congratulate you in revealing your self.

    1. I’ve been considering it for a few months, but with the chapbook, I decided to go ahead and do it. I’ll miss the anonymity, but I hope I’ll feel more accomplished this way. I guess I’ll find out haha. Thank you! 🙂

  2. Even Mr. King used Richard Bachman for a while. There’s some vulnerability, I suppose, with using your real name but at some point, everyone has to put it on the line. Congratulations!

  3. Allison… I almost typed, “Blair” (love Blair on GG! and love Stephen King… no wonder you’re one of my favorites! LOL)

    Would you like me to change your name on your poetry on my site and mentions of you (except of course for the poem I dedicated to you entitled “For Blair.”

    I am more than happy to do it and it won’t take much effort. Just let me know!

    Congratulations on your awakening into your truth!

    1. Haha 🙂 Blair was and still is one of my favorite characters of all time, and Stephen King is just great.
      And, sure! if you wouldn’t mind 🙂
      Thank you! I just felt like it was time to really “own” my writings in a sense.

  4. You are a very beautiful young woman. I’m still going to call you “Blair” though cause that’s what I know you as.

    Congratulations on all your success in writing. It is truly deserved and earned.
