How do you choose a name for a character in a novel? It might sound like a trivial decision, but it really isn’t at all.
Each name usually shouldn’t be similar to another character in that book (or to a well-known character in another book), and it often can’t be too long (and confusing). At the same time, a book can’t have too many characters who all have short names, either. With all these restrictions and limitations, where can you go hunting for a list of names?

What if a writer is inspired to write two stories that fall into two different genres? Should they write both despite the fact that their readers might not follow one of the genres? Or will fans of an author be interested regardless, provided there is a common thread they like that runs through that particular writer’s work? Check out this video and find out!
Some books, some movies, have this tragic heart-breaking moment for our main protagonist, where the viewers/readers cannot but weep with them.
I love those scenes!
I love watching them (in movies), reading them (in books) and writing them as well (in my own novels). If you like those too, do let me know what do you think about Shakespearian scenes in my own novels.
What was my inspiration to write “The Senthien”, and when did it happen? Watch this video and find out!
—Spoiler alert– If you didn’t read “The Senthien” don’t watch this video, please. There are mysteries for my readers they need to find out on their own when reading the book. It would be a shame if you saw the answer to one of them before you even start with your Senthien adventure.
