Generating and Keeping Track of Character and Place Names
Do you have trouble choosing names for your characters? Are they either ordinary like John and Jennifer, or awkward for some readers to pronounce? I will provides advice on choosing names that have meaning for your characters and for you. How you can effectively use the names of real places in your fiction, and use descriptions to set a sense of place without turning your book into a travelogue. Finally I’ll address using proofing tools to keep track of them all.
