So, I don’t quite know if this is the right place, but I wasn’t sure where else to post my question.
I’ve been in the community for some time now, but am only now taking my own appearance as a professional seriously. My handle on my pages (FA and SF mainly) are rather… awkward, and not quite something I’d really want to attach to, say an author blurb. Now most of the stuff I have on either site are commissions of art work, but, like the guild name suggests, I’m a writer – or at least I like to think of myself as one.
I plan to try to relaunch myself on those platforms (at least) under my professional name, but I’m not sure how I should quite go about it. I mean, should I delete my old accounts entirely? If so, should I repost the stories I had (all, like, five of them)? What about my art commissions that well outnumber my story submissions?
I want to be taken seriously as a writer and want to be able to create a following and I want my page to show that. Are there any recommendations one can give to someone trying to create a more professional page?
