I have a confession – my name is not Ed. My first name starts with an E, and my maiden name starts with a D. But my last name really is Martin.
There are thousands of Ed Martins out there.
I am not the one running for Congress is Missouri (although Facebook seems to think I am because they have my page labelled as a community page for him).
I am not the Ed Martin selling cars in Indiana.
I am not the Ed Martin involved in a basketball scandal at the University of Michigan.
I am not the Ed Martin who’s won awards for his musical compositions.
I’m probably not even the only Ed Martin who writes fiction.
Perhaps I should’ve used something more unique, like my maiden name. But I didn’t. I like being ED Martin. E D Martin. Not Ed.
Mentioned it elsewhere, but I’ll pipe up again :)
Just add periods after E and D. That way it is read as Eee Dee Martin rather than Ed Martin. That will make you stand out a bit more and avoid confusion that these are initials and not a name.
