    Rest in Pieces my Writer's block! Hopefully I'll get things done without it killing me first.

    Yesterday I wrote 7 pages worth of 'world building', 5 characters bio written and outlined 3 chapters.

    Except I'm stuck on names. I'm always stuck on names. I thought of putting placeholder names, but my friend keeps telling me not to do that because I grow attached to them.

    I hate thinking up names. Minor names are easier to pick. But the major character names are too hard to come up with.

    I disagree with your friend who doesn't like placeholders. It always takes me a while to figure out names, but if you're writing something novel-length you've got plenty of time. Better to get everything else down on paper, names are easy to change (usually).

    I'm having such a difficulty with these names, I do want just placeholder names for now. I just want to start somewhere, instead of being stuck for days thinking up of names...
