Last week I read an article on CNN by Stephanie Chen titled Does Your Name Shape Your Destiny?
Go check it out - it's short. And it has a photo. Go ahead, I'll wait.
"Gin!" Oh, you're back already? You read quicker than I do.
Think about this article when you name your characters. Their names shape their destinies, too.
Think what you could do with these characters:
A mixed martial arts fighter named Miles Osbourne.
A stripper named Emily Greene.
A physicist named Billy Joe Hatfield.
When the name don't fit the character's occupation, it opens up a whole new side of the character for you to layer in all kinds of good stuff.
Now think about these characters. How do you envision them?
What's in a name?
Could be quite a lot.
