As a writer, I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for some time but, somehow, I’ve never taken the leap until now. First, I wanted to figure out a pen name. I had chosen one that never sat quite right for me. Today, it finally hit me. Melora is my best friend’s middle name. I’ve always loved it and thought I wanted to name a child that, or at least a character. Then I thought, what am I waiting for? It would make a perfect pen name. But what about the last name? I started thinking through my family history and found three surnames that looked like possibilities. Johnson just seemed right. So here I am, writing world, Melora Johnson! It’s time to start a blog.
