Title: Character Naming Research Help Needed
Post by: michelle-selders on August 11, 2019, 07:26 PM
I am currently a student of Hamline’s Masters of Fine Arts Children’s (MFAC) writing program.  As part of my work for an extended student Critical Thesis paper, I’d love to get the input of as many working children’s authors as possible.  Your particular expertise would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!

Hi, Michelle. I just took your survey, but I cannot answer question eight, so the survey wouldn't post. I tried with question eight, but I really cannot separate naming characteristics and list them in order of importance. It is too organic a process for me, and the importance of certain characteristics sometimes varies with the character being named.
