Deadly Names – The search for characters

Do you ever wonder how writers come up with the names for their characters?

I like it FAST!

I love fast cars. No, I don't sit on my couch on Sunday's watching cars go around a track for hours. That's not my style. What I do like however, is the look of fast cars, especially sports cars. I wouldn't necessarily want to drive one everyday, but on the weekends or to blow off [...]

GOAL! That’s football right?

No, I'm not talking about football when I say goal. I'm talking about goals for 2013. In my blog, 2013 I'm kicking your butt, I talked about sharing my goals for this year and making myself accountable to well, you. I actually have a month by month breakdown which is more detailed, but I thought you'd [...]
