May I just add, SD...
If, for any reason, you are using a nickname and find yourself in a situation in which you must provide a real name, where applicable, you should provide a pseudo name or alias.
As an example, to be published in Writer's Beat's Writer's Beat Quarterly
, formerly known as In Pencil
, you need a real or realistic name. An alias/pen name is allowed, as long as it is realistic, eg; "Jordan Smith".
