Titles and character names always take me forever. I think it’s because I want them to be perfect. To be profound. To just fall into place.
I spend a lot of time waiting for things to fall into place, and I don’t always think that’s bad.
Until I’m in a situation where I don’t have time to wait for things to fall into place.
I’m writing a draft of the story I thought would be my thesis a year earlier than I thought I would be, and without any of the preliminary research I had planned to do. It isn’t as disastrous as I thought it would be, except for the fact that in every fragment I’ve workshopped, the characters haven’t had names.
Now, they have names (sort of- they are still open to revision). I even think I have a working title. Gasp.
