Characters

Question: I have trouble coming up with characters names and personalities.

My question is.........How do you find out those things quickly and easily?

Answer: There are several articles on creating characters (including names) on the "Write a Novel" tab on this site. I suggest you start there.

As for making the process "quick and easy," that's a tall order. Taking time to really get to know your characters, to flesh out their quirks and strengths, can actually be a good thing. If you rush through it, you might end up with superficial characters who won't be nearly as compelling or original.
