Names and naming characters

The wonderful Sarah Salway invited me to be a guest blogger on her site and talk about characters' names and the naming of characters. The blog post is here. Thanks so much, Sarah, it was a very stimulating thing to think about.

Character's names are so important. It reminds me of the huge responsibility of trying to name my children. But at least with my fictional characters I don't have to argue it out with my husband!!!

Great article on Sarah's blog. I agree that you can't force a name on a character. Glad I found your blog to read.

Kat :-)

Fascinating stuff! I also wanted to tell you I just received "Riffing the Strings." I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but that didn't stop me from giving you and it a plug on my latest blog. Check it out. I'll write more about it after i've read it -- and especially your piece. Can't wait!
