10 steps to naming your character perfectly

If you don’t think about it, naming your character will not even strike you as a problem. You’ll get on with the writing, the way you do and sooner or later you’ll be done. But if you do, then you’re in trouble. The minute you start thinking about it you realize how very important the name is. How all in god’s green earth, is in the very name and it’s not even your name. It’s the name of your character, the one that puts the pillars in your story. It’s the name of your illegitimate child, the one you’ll be remembered for. So what’s it gonna be. Or more importantly, how will you get around the naming process?

The 10 things list of ‘I wasn’t thinking when I said this’

What I intend to do by writing this list of madness is provide all the potential writers out there with a crafty ‘10 things’ list of phrases that belong to real people in their real weird, real unedited moments which I give away with full permission to use for whatever reason. What you can do is use these unexpected, particularly graphic, generally creative slip of tongues in your stories. They’re funny when they are done being offensive. Read and enjoy the part where they were not meant for you.

A day in the life of…

For the idea of this blog post, a day in the life of, I have to credit someone else- Thequietpeople.com

A day in the life of me includes first of all waking up early. And I do that because I sleep early too. As boring as the very introduction sounds, it is what it is. I wake up early, I work out and I do a lot of other very healthy and responsible things. But this is probably the only good habit I have that I’m very proud of. Usually after that I have to get ready in time for a dreaded 8:30 class but in  vacations there’s none of that. I have breakfast and then for the most part I do aimless stuff like fix my room, check my tumblr/ instagram e.t.c

I take pictures. Lots of pictures. If I had to do something I love other than writing, I’d pick modeling. Except for I’m not tall enough to be a model (proud member of the small people community)
