Blank Page

I'm using this (unpaid) day off to get cracking on a new writing project. So these awesome characters who have been loving, fighting and generally tormenting my brain for a few years now will soon find a home on the page.

First, they're going to need some names. So I'm visiting as good a place as any to find some.

Other than the obvious need for a name, finding a suitable name is vital and helpful. Not only does it humanize an idea, it can help mold a character. Telling me about what that 'person' will or won't do. From today on I can say, well nobody named Chuck would drink a cosmopolitan. Irwin doesn't have the guts to ask her out. Dana would never walk down that dark street alone.

Or would they?


Homer was right:
Jebus - Male - Biblical - Treading under foot; manger

The cosmos must be out of whack, because we both wrote a new blog on the same day. Weird.

And remember, Johnny Football Ace will never beat Neil in Dungeons & Dragons.
