a trip to the book store

While at Barnes & Noble: $24 for a book on how to name characters? Seems to me, if you need this, maybe you shouldn’t be writing. See also, How To Write Funny.

    I didn’t know there was a logic to character naming:-/

    How about this: don’t use a name over 15 letters in length or that requires a footnote on how to pronounce it. Also, try not confusing the hell out of the reader (meet Clair and Clara!) There. Someone give me $24.

    @ Gigi – Nice blog! Thanks for stopping by!
