New Posts Are Coming (Also, Funny Names)

I want to write a new blog post!!!!!! But there is just so much other crap to do! And not enough minutes in the hour OMG!!!!!!!!!1

In the meantime, enjoy this pointless piece I threw together a few years ago. Many people might not be aware that Vladimir Nabokov, author of "Lolita" and dozens of other works, often inserted characters into his books whose names were anagrams of his own (the most famous, perhaps, being Vivian Darkbloom in "Lolita"). So, being a future novelist myself, one day I sat down with a notepad and sketched out potential anagrammatic names based on my own name.

There are very few possibilities on this list of a real name. My name is 15 letters long, but only contains four vowels. The huge proportion of consonants to vowels makes it really hard to come up with words using all the letters in my name, let alone proper nouns. Consequently, many of these names are weird.

A final note: all of these names are characters in my work and are thus copyrighted. So don't go stealing them like that chick who stole the heartwarming story of how I got my name and put it in a story about a little girl named Mason. X-(
