Naming characters. |
I remember reading about how Charles Dickens named his characters. He actually made up names, which I've never done. Instead I usually use an old edition of a phonebook to get ideas. I just came to a section of my current novel that I'm currently revising where I just gave the various characters place names such as, cough, Name, or I didn't name them at all. Theses are all minor characters who might not appear again, so I didn't take the time to name them when I originally wrote this section but I needed to take the time now.
