Finding names for your characters

One morning you wake up and there is this character walking around inside your head. He or she is begging you to tell their story, but what should you call them and who are they really? They must have some sort of back story  and history to make the story complete.

Here are few websites that will help you flesh out your character and maybe find a side kick for them too.

Warning searching for names can be addicting.

Writing prompts

Little girl with wild hair
Sometimes you feel like pulling your hair out to find that next creative sentence.

Have you ever sat there staring at your monitor wondering where your writing project is going next? Should your main character just jump off a cliff and end it all.

I find stepping away from the project and writing something else helps. Here are a few places where you can get free writing prompts.
