It is probably a good idea to address the issue of my name.
My legal name is Trevor Scott Chittick and I am known by that name on Facebook and LinkedIn.
When I first started screenwriting and set up my website, I simply went with Trevor Scott, which is what I want to be known as professionally.
The origins of me using just my first and middle names are unclear even to me. To put it bluntly, I hate my last name. I always have. I think when I was in university, I mentioned a few times that I wanted to drop my last name and just go with Trevor Scott. I actually thought about changing it legally, but the hassle of doing it and ultimately getting harassed by today’s neo-con thought police doesn’t appeal to me. It just doesn’t roll off the tongue that easily for anyone. And when they announce my name for the Best Original Screenplay Oscar, I don’t want it bungled. Trevor Scott is clean, crisp, professional and pronounceable.
The only hitch with me using just Trevor Scott is that there are a lot of other people with the same name – a football player and a novelist, to name but two. There is only one Trevor Scott Chittick – me.
So, for professional reasons here on this blog and on my website I’ll continue to be known as Trevor Scott. On Facebook and LinkedIn, I’ve added my legal last name so that people who know me can find me. Hopefully, there won’t be any confusion.
