I literally spent six hours over the weekend trying to come up with a name for the world in the Book of Dreams. I had a name from years ago, but the story has evolved and outgrow the original name.
The new name of the world is Kuria. It actually isn’t that important to the story line and isn’t used much. I felt I was making too much out of it. But names are important for the tone they set and the impact it has on the reader. You know something about Severus Snape even before you’ve met the character.
I’m okay with Kuria. There is a plot reason for the name that makes sense, which was important to me. And I’m going to have some fun with the name in the second book.
But it’s definitely a challenge when it takes six hours to come up with one word.
