In gearing up for NaNoWriMo this year, I found a bunch of interesting stuff at the resources page of NaNoFiMo.org. That's short for National Novel FINISHING Month, aka December.

I always have an awful time coming up with character names; all the ones I come up with seem like they're something taken out of a fantasy romance novel written by an 8th grader. In fact, I did a fiction workshop for teens & preteens last spring and I was able to come up with names that made THEM howl.

One of the NaNoFiMo resource links led to a name generator, but so far I'm not crazy about the results -
1. Philip Lefevre (ahem...again with the bad romance name)
2. Rodney Tolson
3. Charles Trowbridge
4. Willie Corona (I like this one but not for this story)
5. Joe Stcyr (that trips off the tongue)

But it's at least something to start the process of figuring out what to call your people.

I found the brief character sheet useful in sketching out all of my characters except for the protagonist. She's gonna need some extra help, and I frankly just don't know who she is quite yet. Hopefully one of the longer sheets will help me out there.
