New novel.
1.5 years in.
Decide to change my main character's name.
Find and replace.
Remember why I named him the name that I originally named him.
Find and replace.
Remember why I decided to change the original name to the new name.
Find and replace.
Wait a minute... Wasn't there...
Google the meaning of the original name.
Ah ha.
Find and replace.
Remember that the original name was too close to a nickname that I gave the main character, which may confuse readers, which I may never even have because this book is a risk and maybe it's terrible and what the hell am I doing who do I think I am Martin freaking Amis?
Find and replace.
But...
Explode.

  2. One dude and one lady. Equal time. But his story is a pain in my ass right now, so he feels more "main."
