Am I the only one who finds naming incredibly difficult? I’ve gotten past naming people, mostly by combining character names from things I’ve read in the past, but I’m getting to the point where I need to name THINGS. Like the nation I’ve created, and the states (counties? proviences? see my issue????) that make it up, and the cities within it, and even the things within it that I’ve made up that aren’t real. For example, there is magic in my book (THE DISCUSSION ON MY NERD-DOM HAS BEEN CLOSED), and the way the magical system works is that you extend your “self” (soul?) past your body and use it to impress your will onto the world around you. You can even break off those pieces of your soul (thanks, J.K. Rowling!) and have them do your bidding while you go about your day. But what are they called? And is it a different name when they’re still connected to you than when you break them off? This is why I’m a terrible writer – because I always run into questions about my own work that I don’t actually know the answer to. Pout.
