    Sorry, but I am selfishly bumping my sotry up so that it can get transfered to the new system.

    Best suggestion:

    Do what we did with 2S. Simply think of either (a) the themes of your story when naming it, but not necessarily events, and (b) when you are naming characters, draw from bits and pieces of the names of friends who sort of resemble the characters, or other such parallel naming. For instance, two characters from 2S, Jaren Valkan and Kristara Eri'lur, were named by taking my name, the name of my "soulmate" or whatever, and the old SW RPG name that my best friend used to use. The parts just got rearranged and a couple of vowels tweaked for sound and POOF, a SW-sounding name.

    I think it helps when you're writing to go for names that parallel real people, since if you put those names to characters they relate to, you end up with a bit more of a sense of who your characters are, even before you write much about them.

    Another way to do names is to get a name book or a dictionary, pick a word or a foreign name that describes the character, and rearrange the letters or respell it a bit to give it an alien feel. For example, in a short story I've written, there is a demon who puts God on trial. The demon's name is Ferial. Here's how I got it: feral = something that was once domestic but is now wild, like a feral cat. Add an "i" to it, and you also evoke phonetic images of fire or inferno. A perfect name for a creature who was once an angel and is now a demon.
    Anyway, that's how I do it.

    i'd just take a word, (preferably a long one) rearrange it, and then call it that word and have "dispute" or "crisis" or somethin like that
