Question: I struggle to name all of my characters! Whenever I have a name to use, it just doesn't sound right to me. Whenever I find any name, it just doesn't seem to suit the character! Any help or advice?

Answer: Don't get too hung up on this issue.

Finding a name that feels just right for a character is great, but it's not the be-all end-all.

If you've searched through baby names books, telephone directories, geneologies, etc. and still can't find a name you can live with, then just pick a place-holder name - one that will do for now until something better occurs to you.

You might never find the "perfect" name, or even a better name, but at least your book will get written.
