Stupid Writing Tricks

What's in a name? A lot if you randomly switch the name of one of your characters in a continuing serial. For some reason, in the upcoming July story for the Edge of Propinquity, I switched the name of one of the love interests from David to Brad. I'm not sure why. I've just gone back through all of the stories to find out when the switch happened. Apparently, story #7. The one I'm working on right now. Thank goodness it wasn't earlier. Thank goodness I caught it. I don't know why the character suddenly had a new name in my mind. Now, I'm going to have to extra careful in the future that I'm using the right name.
