    I think your first name looks unique without being hard to say, but I'm guessing you want to change your surname? Harika Bantu would be a way to "simplify" it without changing much. Or out of the...

    I assume you're setting this around now, based on the names. They're overall very modern. Looking at Sheridan and Ji-Eun in particular.

    Maybe take out the "what happened" part and just put that in the plot or something? Then it could work for fantasy/sci-fi/etc as well. And it's good for post-apocalyptic as it is. No need to be so...

    Ahaha I actually love that. Rebels with a sense of humor. Maybe minus the tophat, and rather than a tomato, with something more like a...grenade or whatever, if it's a violent movement. But if it's a...

    See, the reason she said more info is needed is because that's too little to go on to make useful suggestions. The use of the mockingjay as a symbol for the rebellion is drawn from the world and...

    I think any name can be used as a title, provided it fits the story to do so. Unique names work because, obviously, they stand out and set the novel apart. But common names can work too, for...

    Not to brag, but I reached 50,000 on the 18th! ^^ But I've hardly written a thing since hahaha. My story will probably be 70-80,000 words when finished, so I still have a ways to go. But even if I...
