comment Tools for generating characters' names
Seventh Sanctum has quiet a few generators (some serious, some not), and it's my personal website of choice if I need something quickly. They provide a good quick framework I can flesh out.

comment How do you track random thoughts and ideas?
@JFW - I'm just using the black hard cover notebook with lined paper. As for my pen, it's a simple ball point, in fact it's a fairly cheep one so I can pop off the little pocket clip thing. Gets in the way otherwise.

comment How do I recover my confidence after a harsh writing group?
I've found that NaNoWriMo is a great way to just try to get something done. While you can do it outside of November (which I've done) I've found having the knowledge that 100,000 other people are crazy enough to try it at the same time is a great motivator.

comment When should modifiers be avoided?
Frankly, I still have problems with this one, sometimes it's hard to convey those feelings in just the dialog or actions.

+1 for "Allow your writing to suck". I think this is the biggest thing new writers need to learn, and it's hard lesson. The whole point of the first draft is to suck, that's what the rewrite is for.

comment How to go about breaking up a looooong YA story?
Or anything that leaves the reader asking 'what happens next' it could be a cliff hanger, or it could be that the climax of the books has changed everything.

I don't think it's a duplicate, how keeping track of the random thoughts and ideas is really it's own topic.
