It's bad form for me to disappear from LJ and then come back asking for help, I know.
For the last several weeks I was either frantically preparing for our local SCBWI conference
or recovering from the conference.
And in just a few days, it's my turn to blog at From the Mixed-Up Files of Middle-Grade Authors.
I could really use your help.
I'd like to write about memorable character names in middle-grade fiction.
When I was preparing my last post at From the Mixed-Up Files,
I was amazed that both Wildebeest and Zebu remembered a secondary character name
from the Artemis Fowl books, and I wanted to to know what other names have stuck in readers' minds.
Please let me know if there's a middle-grade fiction character whose name(s) you still remember.
Please let me know why that name sticks with you (funny, descriptive, sounds great, etc).
And please, if you're a writer, let me know how you go about naming your own characters.
If you tell me it's okay, I will use your names and quotes in the blog post.
Thank you in advance for any and all help for this procrastinating blogger!
