The Topic (choose a theme for your story)

A past life

A collector and their collection

A life-changing relationship

A heroic deed or rescue mission

A haunted location

The impossible Q. Anyone who knows me, knows I love names. I would gladly name everyone on the planet if I was allowed (if only I could keep track of billions of names!). Choose 1 of the names below (It does not have to be the name of your main character. It doesn’t even have to be the name of a person). I have a list for males and females you can pick from either but you don’t need to pick from both. I have included an audio clip if you are unsure how to pronounce the name.

malachite, peach, lilac, copper, topaz

Chose an Object

kite, mirror, corset, paper, candle

Chose an Emotion

wrathful, restless, ardent, melancholic, curious

    You only have to choose 1 of the names not 1 from the male and 1 from the female category, just 1. I did 5 of each just to make sure there was an equal number of male and female choices. You can use as many of the names as you want of course but I just wanted to clarify because those who’ve submitted so far chose 1 name from both the male and female categories and I wasn’t sure if that was a choice or poor communication on my part.

    I chose a male and female name as both worked in my silly submission.
