Morning Lilacs! ✨🍁📚🍁✨
How do you name your characters? This quote and this question go hand in hand for me. A lot of the time there’s such a significance behind a name that we don’t even realize, yet once you know it, everything makes even more sense. In a lot of ways, falling in love with a character, remembering their name, it really is all connected. 💜
Also, if you haven’t checked it out yet, my blog post last month for The Lilac Blog was actually all about how I name my characters!!! I’d love your thoughts and opinions on it, and the link to my website is in my bio! 💜💜💜
So basically, there are a lot of things naming characters depends on for me. But the two most important things come down to being consistent in whatever you decide (either within a certain race, or country) and doing your research! Names have such significant value throughout history, and knowing the history behind them and what others will think when they hear them should be important even when you think it isn’t! I dive into this a lot more in my blog post, but those are the basics of the discussion. ✨🍁☕️🍁✨
Side note, how is everyone doing with their Nanowrimo goals??
