Names are on my mind, since I have a new cast of characters to christen. I often pick a name, then audition it by writing a few scenes using it to see how it feels. I sometimes have to run through two or three names for my most important characters. Hopefully you didn’t have to do that with your kids!
So what’s your ‘name’ story?
If you’re new to Story Weekend, here’s how it works: I pick a theme and you share something from your life that relates to that theme, however you interpret it. Thanks to all of you who’ve been contributing. As always, there are a few “rules”:
▪ The story must be true
▪ Try to keep it under 100 words. Embrace the challenge! That’s about six or seven lines in the comment form. I want others to read your story, and most people tend to skip if it’s too long. I know how tough it is to “write tight” but I hope you’ll accept this as a challenge.
