@ Carrisa: Well, I've found babynames.com helps when choosing names, it doesn't really matter wether you use the name as first or last, or middle. There's some pretty unique names on there that could probably help you. If you aren't so keen on that, search for surnames [last names] from a culture or region you like, and if you find two you like, it could work for both surnames and middle names. I hope I was somewhat helpful!

And now for some advice asking: I've been having some writer's block lately, and it's really getting on my nerves. I have a story I really want to finish the next chapter of, and I have no ideas. And also, I have start a short story for english tomorrow, so that's a problem as well. Do any of you have some advice how to get over writer's block, or at least work with it?

Okay I'm writing a novel right now and I need help. I need to find Angel names. But the site I keep going to is not working for me. So if you have any idea's on that it would be great.

Thanks

Again, I suggest babynames. XD That might have something angel-ish. Then again, you could always go with the cliche angel names like Gabriel, etc. Sorry I could be much help.

See I don't want common names like that.
More out there names and I tryed babynames too and it didn't work.

Fallen Angel names will work if you can help me find them.
Just not the ones we already know and are common.

I know. *shrugs* I was just suggesting, eh. I can't really help you since I haven't done a story with angels. *mostly does fantasy and sci-fi* :?

You're welcome Tengo Nubs, it was fantastic! You're very gifted.
for baby names I go to babynamesworld.com. I like it, although sometimes I go more for the sound of the name than the meaning.
And Phantasma Wolf, for writers block what I do is come up with a list of possible directions things can go in, like maybe introducing another character to jazz things up or some other obstical (sp?) the characters go through. Other than that, I sit back and chill, listen to some music, read, watch movies, and hope for an idea.

I'm not too sure how to go about it. At my school, we have a literary magazine and if you entered something my English teacher said that your writing would be considered officially published. So maybe if your school has a magazine like that you could do it that way. But you want it to be proofread by an English teacher first, just to make sure you present your poem at its best. I was considering it for my short story Congratulations (Yes, it's based off the song by Blue October. I couldn't resist!) but I wanted to put it through its fourth re-write before publishing and I couldn't find the time before the magazine deadline which was yesterday. Oh well, it wasn't that worthy, even though I'm still very proud of it. Otherwise, I'm don't know how you could get it published. Sorry, I didn't take in the fact that not all schools have literary magazines. ^^'

You're welcome! It tells the truth about regret! =3
