Nobody said it was easy

I’m in the midst of cramming for the next novel.  Sometimes an idea slams like a brick upside the head, nothing to be done but follow where the plot leads.  Two months ago I got Heroes, the new Willie Nelson album; I have no other Willie Nelson songs except “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain” and his duet with Waylon Jennings, “Mamas, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys”.  But something compelled me to add Heroes to the plethora of tunes.  Now of those songs are on the OST for Splitting the Sky, including “The Scientist”, Willie’s cover of Coldplay’s hit.

I have a list of names; this is a sci-fi tale, so Bob, Jane, John and Sue just don’t cut it.  But I need to place monikers with characters, and as I’m starting this novel for Camp NaNoWriMo in three days…  But as Willie sings, nobody said this was easy.
