Help! Again!!!!

Dear fellow writers and readers, and other random people. I must say this again.

HELP!

Yep. That’s right. I’m stuck. Again.

I’m not much of an inventor.

I’m needing some help from some creative, technologically-inclined people right now. I need you to comment and share…

Ideas for technology in the future.

And I’ll need to put them in my new novel.

Thanks to your help with character names, all of my characters have names that are either (a) made up, (b) are altered to fit the time period, or (c) sound like futuristic names. Now I need inventions for the future world. The only things that I’ve figured out so far are really, really, really tall buildings, hover cars, super-fast transporters, and lights that simply float and aren’t connected to anything. And I’d love to have you help me come up with more futuristic inventions.

Please comment and share your ideas! I need all the inventions I can get! 🙂

I Need Your Help!

Help!

I need some second opinions, suggestions, and advice, and I’m coming to you, dear readers, for assistance!

First: I’m working on a new story that will (hopefully) be my first full-length novel. I have a name for my antagonist (Raltan Menger! Isn’t that an awesome bad guy name??) and I have a some of the plot worked out, but I’m struggling with a name for my protagonist. I’ll give you some background info:

  1. He was a captain in Menger’s army, until Menger became dictator. He feels responsible, and therefore guilty, for Menger being on the throne. He will probably still be going by Captain ___ sometimes.
  2. He’s smart and a very good fighter. He may be able to turn invisible, but I’m not sure about that yet.

That’s about as much as I have so far. I definitely still have a ways to go. 😉 So, basically, I’m looking for a name as awesome as Raltan Menger, but still one that matches him and his personality. Unfortunately, as you can see, there’s not much to go on, but please, please, please comment with your suggestions! A made up name would be awesome, too. I made up Raltan by mixing up the letters in the word tarantula. 😉

Second: I need to know if I should still do the Story Starters. If you could vote on the poll below to let me know what you think that would be great!

Thanks so much for all of your comments and likes. I would definitely enjoy some feedback on this post! Please feel free to comment with any name ideas you have, no matter how outlandish they may seem. 😀 Thanks again!
