Character Names, etc.


Camy

I'm not very good with inventing unique character names. Appalling actually, no idea why, just one of those things. So, as no matter what I do I get a lot of spam, I came up with the idea of using the senders names. Now, some of these really are unique, otherwise they'd get caught by my good friend and colleague: 'Spammy', the spam filter.

I keep them in a file called ... erm *shuffles about looking embarrassed* 'good names.txt'

Here are today's:

Carson Richmond

Jarek Looman

Jaramillo Camille

Isabella Russell

Luella Conn

Stuller Schlund

Allie Jorgensen

Vonfeldt Merriam

Guillermo Scruggs

Colville Carrigan

Gullace Riback

Hordei Africanthropus

Expect to see them in a story, sooner or later. Word. :hug:

If the cat would get off the desk I might be able to post this in a timely fashion.

"Timely," she says, meowling. "There's nothing you've ever done that's timely."

"Yeah, right," I reply. "Grub? Litter refilling duties? Opening and closing the back door a thousand times a day?"

"Yes, but you love me, don't you?" She says, looking like butter wouldn't melt. "And whose fault is it you don't fit a Cat flap. Purrrr?"

"You're a tart, you know that don't you?" I say. But she's fallen fast asleep ....

Cats. Who'd have one?

Emus are another matter entirely! :hehe:

The last chapter of Seraph is not making me happy. It's not making me happy, because it won't ... work. *sighs* 'Bathtime', on the other hand, is nearly finished. As are 'Tiatrather', 'Probisher', and 'Berkeley Tales'.

Enough.

Character's names are often the last thing I think of. I mean I write the story with characters called A, B and C, <i>then</i> come up with names to replace the letters.Though the one I'm working on at the moment has no named characters at all!

I can't do that - or should I say: I've never tried, but don't think I could. Character's names are important to me, especially as I don't (have never) outlined. A 'Cecil' is different to a 'David' and the polar opposite of a 'Jack'.Whatever floats your muse, I guess! :lol:

Hmm. Intriguing. :smile: Camy.
