Okay, so I’ve a question regarding character names. Let me ‘splain.
My yet-to-be-penned 2009 NaNoWriMo novel is a sort-of sequel to two earlier novels (written in 2005 and 2007, respectively), and has a few characters who carry over. One of these is a rockin’ female named Roen, and although she isn’t the main character, she’s quite important and is present throughout most of the novel. I’m also introducing a new female character (she’s not the MC, either, but is also important) who wants to be named Wren. Question is this: Roen and Wren are really similar-sounding names. Are they too much alike? Should I call Wren something else even though the name seems to fit her? Or is it enough that the names look different on the page? What do you think?
And on a related note, I still can’t figure out my ending. ARGH!!!
And on an unrelated note, the greater Phoenix area totally got gypped in terms of a monsoon season this year. No rain for me. Just sun. Forever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever…
