When A Pen Name Backfires

When I am developing a blog one of the things I think about is giving the blog a “voice”. There’s always a little bit of me in it, but I try to find a voice that compliments the site and makes it more interesting. Quite often that “voice” happens to be that of a woman. I’ve done lots of different characters, like pretending to be your “Mom” or one of the characters who would fit in perfectly on “Sex and the City“.

So earlier this week I received an email from a producer for the show Take 5 on XM Satellite Radio. Turns out they wanted to interview one of the characters I play on the web live on the radio. Now as fate would have it, it just happened to be a female character. After considering doing my best Mrs. Doubtfire impersonation I decided I couldn’t pull it off. So I wrote back telling them she was out of the country at the moment but I coordinate with her on this website, am very familiar with the project, and would be happy to do the interview. However as I suspected, a thirty-something male who runs this particular website is not the story they wanted to hear about or tell, so I lost the interview slot … sigh.
