I’m working on a witch-themed BDSM novella. Normally, I don’t write BDSM, but the story made me do it, and someone is about to get tied down and nailed, and dammit, she’s gonna like it. That’s beside the point. The point is, I’m a little fuzzy on that someone’s name.
Yes, the BDSM makes me a tad antsy, as I have no practical experience with it, but I’m milking my creative cow, watching plenty of porn, and reading some truly bad books (which I suppose are a lesson on what not to do–come to think of it, the porn probably is, too). So, I think I’ve torn down my mental roadblocks on that aspect of the story, and my characters are finally in a good place to get busy.
The problem I have now is my witch’s name.
So far, she is Raven in my WIP. Not bad for a witch; it came as a bolt of inspiration I received during the Super Bowl, if you can believe that. The name itself got me in the mood to write a witchy character, but for some reason I pictured her with red hair, not black as one might expect.
Now, parents can, and do, name their children without seeing what they look like, so of course there could be hundreds of red-haired Raven’s and blonde Ruby’s out there, but since I’m really the one doing the naming here, should I go with something that better describes her appearance?
Or maybe Raven perfectly describes her dark attitude…
I’m undecided, but I’ve got time and I’m totally open to suggestion.
Give me your good, bad witch names, friends. Just kindly check your Sabrinas and Hermiones at the door.
