I don’t know about anyone else, but I have always struggled with finding the perfect name for a character or a place. I hate just pulling something out and sticking it on there. So, one of the exercises that I do is the collecting of names and the meanings of names.
These entries in the Working Notebook are easy and straight forward. Go out and find some names. Then list them. That’s it. Then they will be there waiting for you when you are looking for that perfect name.
