How do you think of names of characters? Up until now, they’ve always just come to me when I’ve been writing. As I thought I had names for the main characters for ‘Holiday’ I’ve been writing using X and Y for their names instead. I decided yesterday that as I can’t seem to be able to find my original notes for this, I need to find names for them – and for the other characters. It’s hard. So so hard. I need names that suit them, but just can’t really find them. I’ve got his, but have no idea about hers. Or most of the other characters. In the end I did a section for female names I like and one for male names.
I wanted to do some work on it so much last night. The internet wasn’t working though, so couldn’t. Honestly it’s a joke, the 1st time I’m desperate to do some I can’t! I just hope I have the same ‘need’ tonight.
Nothing else to write about. Work’s really busy so I’m not finding much time to do any writing.
Oh, I’ve just started a novel by Danielle Steel; I can’t remember what it’s called – Heatbreak, Heartbeat, Heartsomething. It was really cheap in a shop the other day so I thought why not? I’m only at the beginning, but it seems quite good. I used to read a lot of her books when I was younger, I think I stopped because they’re all about women a lot older than me and most of what I read is about women around my age; I identify with them a lot more. Should be good though, they usually are!
