Aspiring Advice: Regrettably, Postponed

I had fully planned to write a column about Fantasy Names today, but my wife and I are about to have a baby! Hmm - which is the more important priority? Probably not blogging. So, until further notice, posts for the Laire will be few and far for a couple of weeks. I apologize for hyping any of you up. Life happens, and we have things to take care of before we head out.

I'll quickly sum up my thoughts for what I was going to write and do a real column later: Fantasy Names -  consider names that would best relate the reader to your character, usually not in the form of outlandishly pronounced names that only the writer can pronounce without butchering them. Short and simpler is likable.

Again, I apologize. Thank you to all my readers and followers who've made this blog a great experience. I solemnly promise to make it up to you on a later date.

I'm David, and I'm going to be a father . . . again!


  1. So exciting! Congratulations! :D

  2. I agree with you on names... sometimes when I see crazy names I roll my eyes and just make up new ones. A little odd is great but when they are really long and silly.....


  3. Congrats, David! I hope everything goes well, and you enjoy your new little one!

  4. Congrats! Being a parent is awesome, and we all totally understand your blogging absence.
