Each has huge problems at the beginning of the story and each has different ways of handling those problems. Juliana's perpetually happy outlook would seem totally wrong for Robert's need to atone for sins he didn't even commit.

The Name Game: How this author goes about selecting people and place names

[image error]

Medieval image of Edward I

I recently had the interesting experience of responding to a FB request from a fellow author. She wanted help naming a character. I’ve had trouble with this from time to time, as I suspect most authors have. So I developed a few methods for selecting character and place names. Since I write fiction, I prefer not to use the names of real people and real place
