Tough Prep for #NaNoWriMo

November is getting closer...

I am doing some preparatory work for my novel writing efforts in November, in particular coming up with the characters for my story. You would be surprised how difficult making up names for these folks can be.

This book will be dramatic, filled with intrigue and danger. I can’t call the bad guy Dr. Evil or Mr. Heroin. Like most writers (or so I’m told), I have created place-filler names. Some come from friends and acquaintances. Others I pulled from a baby name site. Either way, they still sound fake to me.

I am therefore crowdsourcing a bit. Do you want to be a character in my novel? I can use just a first name or, hell, I will use your first and last name if you like. Feel free to honor a dead relative or a pet (latter dead or alive). Please do not submit your sworn enemy’s name. Just comment below and tell me why you think your name suggestion should be a character in my book. Also give me some idea about the attributes of the character. I do not want to make Saint Joan into Joan Junkie, after all.
