What’s in a name? Hard work!

Names, for a short story writer, are a nightmare! Having collated my second collection (working title ‘Twist and Mix’), Kate changes age and situation several times and James appears in the past, present and future! Hardly feasible. I constantly refer to my ‘Bumper Book of Babies Names’. I’ve even found myself watching television with a pad and pen searching the credits for interesting Christian names – and then, do they suit the character? Which one is the real James? Ah well, must get back to editing – Juno, Jolyon, Jethro?

    I know! It’s always so difficult for me to choose my characters names. They have to be unique yet suit the character. Like you I look at credits, usually movie credits, but I’m going to start mining my favorite TV shows now too! Thanks for the tips. 🙂
