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.
