I recently tweeted (like today) that I had two chapters done in my work in progress (tentatively titled Girl, Thief) but that I still didn’t have a name for the main character. I know this character very well, as I’ve been outlining and stewing and generally not writing about her for a few years now. But I never had a name that seemed to match the character.
After two hours of dedicated web browsing, I know her first name is Katherine. Still working on the last name, but that’s a major, if slightly weird, milestone.
