Well, it's been a little while since I've done a writer-ly topic. But I don't want to talk so much today. Instead, I have a question for you: How do you choose what to name things?
I mean, we name our babies, and our pets... and a lot of people name their cars, too. But as writers, especially in Sci-fi and Fantasy, we have to name people, places, events, objects, races, and magic/technology. So how do you do it? How do you decide on a name? Does it have some special meaning, or does it just sound good? Either way, let me (and each other) know in the comments!
P.S. And while we're participating, here's another reminder--on the right side of my blog, there's a poll asking what I should have at my booth for CONduit, which takes place at the end of May. If you haven't voted already, please do so. Thanks. :)
