Will be going to the Metro Comic Con tomorrow! Hope I can find more stuff to read (as if I didn't already have a large enough pile of books still waiting to be read), and maybe meet (fangirl?) over some authors I know.

6. How do you come up with names and story titles?

For names, I get them from either the people I know or random names I encounter in the news, in old yearbooks, and sometimes in folk tales. For example, the main character of "Alternate Futures", that old old story of mine, was actually named after an online friend (Allisana), because her name was really unusual and I found that it could be broken down to different nicknames, which was essential to the story. (It was about a girl meeting her other selves from parallel dimensions.) I choose names according to the image those names conjure for me, say, I'd call a soft-spoken diwata Mayumi, and the like.

As for story titles...I actually really suck at making them. :l I usually end up writing the entire story first then struggling with the title, and usually they end up being really dull, like "Sky Blue" or "Remembrance". This is something I really have to work on, so if you have any tips, I'd be really happy to hear them. :)
