Up to the tough letters now. J - I tried thinking of something clever for this letter and nothing came to mind besides joy. Not that I think joy is not special, but it's overdone (like the word according to Grammarly). So my brain kept on clicking away, and I thought about names. As a writer, you are always naming characters. Long before I became published, I wrote a story on my other blog every Monday, still do. That adds up to at least one character a week for the last 20 months or so. I went back through the archives and realized I tend to use some names over and over. Does it mean I have an affinity to these names-maybe? The reality is when I'm thinking of naming a character, I write what first comes to mind. For whatever reason, I tend to stay away from common names like Joey, or Jimmy or Johnny, and instead use names like Jude and Jace and Jesse. Does it mean these names/characters strike a chord with me? I don't think so because I found myself quite surprised to find them appearing over and over again for different characters. Now, that I'm aware of that, I will
have to pay more attention to the names I give characters.
If you want to help me out I have a tendency toward J and C, so if you can think of any names I can use, please let me know?
