Earlier this year, I was searching for tertiary character names but kept bumping into the same letters: J and B.
Five months later, three stories later, and I’m still stuck on letters. This time, though, I keep finding M names: Marjorie, Margaret, Martin, Mary…in fact, I think I have a Martin in each of my most recent short stories. I keep typing Marjorie instead of Margaret. So, not only can I not find non-M names, I can’t find new M names.
Arg, it’s so frustrating to be stuck in this name loop!
