Quoting J+D=4:" so far today I have gotten about 1000 words, but I have mainly been focusing on research. I know I will ... [snip!] ... today I don't like the names I picked out, and even though these names have been with me for a while, I'm changing them."


Lol it's like we are the same person.



I spent a lot of time yesterday doing location research as well. If you want to use real places that you haven't been to, I found city-data.com to be a helpful site. I knew about where I wanted my settings to be and that I wanted them to be very small towns, and it was easy to find on that site. Plus some of them have pictures :)



I hate names too. Lets pick each other's character names lol. My main character's name is Naomi. I have a love/hate relationship going with it right now

that's the site I used :)



and right now, my main character's name is Romie (jeromie... her parents were hippies in my first draft of the story, but now they're not...) and her last name was Tate. But now I am wanting to swap her name with one of the lesser characters, Madison (maddie) and I was thinking Gale for the last name...

I actually think Madison Tate sounds really good! I like Gale too though lol



Right now my two main characters are Naomi and Lucas. I loooove the name Lucas, but I go back and forth on Naomi. Her name was originally Rachel, but then my sister pointed out to me that I use too many names from the show One Tree Hill so I changed it. Neither of them have a last name yet.

DAMMIT!



Someone suggested Price last night in another thread and I liked it. I was really thinking about using it.



I get mad bc I literally can only think of celebrity names. I'll sit here like, "Naomi... Naomi... Naomi Campbell!" Then I face palm lol
