I just made my first visit of the year to the Nanowrimo forums. The minute I read about people planning their novel and outlining a plot and creating characters, I just can’t help myself.
There are certainly worse things to be addicted to. Crack. Sex. World of Warcraft. I just have Nano. And complaining. Always complaining.
I need to start my planning. When I plan more, my novels turn out better. I think. I have the first two or three chapters vaguely in my head, but I need a lot more than that. And I need some names. And that’s where you, dear readers, come in. I know it’s hard to name people you know nothing about, so as I do more planning, I’ll try and bring you some character descriptions, and you can suggest names. I hate naming characters, and I’m generally not all that happy with the names I end up with (Although Polly the Duck from Nano 2005 was nice).
So, stay tuned for your chance to name my characters.
