An anonymous contact related to WritersMarket.com must be reading this blog, because she knew I didn't go by Bob. Instead, she changed my name to Bill.
While not as common, this has happened to me before. Bill is short for William, not Robert. Why do people feel this urge to change other people's names?
Also, while we're on the subject of name-calling, my last name has been modified twice in the past week. One person addressed me as Robert Lee Butler; the other person addressed me as Robert Lee Brower.
For the record, it's Robert Lee Brewer.
