I was stumped looking for name generators and google reminded me of this post from 5 years ago!
NaNoWriMo (8)

I’m FINALLY naming my characters today… well at least looking at all the generators and links I can get my hands on. This is the first year I’m doing fantasy so I need names for Everything!

Generators

Whenever I do use generators I end up mashing them up any ways. Do you do that too?

My usual favorites include

The last two NaNoWriMo’s I wrote were regency, historical so I searched for historical and regency in particular related names. Here’s the post I forgot about on my dusty blog last year that has many links.

It's been so long and not sure how these collection thingys work...
I found this article doing #nanoprep and one of their concepts was the one I'm researching for nano! What's worse is there's a book that uses the same premise.
Good thing I still have time to start over :(

#Arrow spoilers anyone? I'm afraid to pop on Reddit because the previews were heavy on #Olicity & that's no bueno over there.

Most importantly: Did they use the Lazarus Pit on Thea?

My flight home from Texas was delayed so I made gifs on phone to humor myself. Yeah, I could move there just for the salsa bar at Taco Cabana!

Finally putting all my #books back where they belong after a spectacular fail at "decluttering". Next time I'll start with less important things... like socks.
