Creating the characters for a story is an incredible journey. Sometimes the character itself comes to me and I can just stick a name that fits the personality. Today, I went around it differently.
I had a story idea that was amusing me and started penning down ideas for it. While I could see some of the storyline, the main character was cloudy to me. Then I started looking up baby-name sites. After two hours of searching and not finding, an idea came to me. I had to google it to get the correct spelling but suddenly I had a name. Within fifteen minutes, my character had a bio, a basic background, and a sarcastic sense of humor.
I feel like I gave birth to a 25-year-old with no patience!
Ah the joys of author-hood…
