What In A Name?
Between critique groups, writing contests and feedback for friends, I’ve read a lot of writers’ work lately. And the thing that jumped out at me, over and over, is the fact that the majority of those stories have characters whose names start with the letter A.
I’ve met them all.
And I’ve used two of those names myself.
So what’s the deal? Why are names that start with the start of the the alphabet so appealing? Any insights? Ideas? And have you used an A name in your writing?
Curiously awaiting . . .
