Here's a page I made in my writer's notebook, where I simply invented four fun characters with fun names that I might write about later.

I use a lot of short excerpts from great literature to inspire writer's notebook writing, and here's one of my favorites. My students must impersonate "A Tale of Two Cities," but they do so without having any comma splices. Here's a link to this lesson: http://corbettharrison.com/lessons/Tale-of-Two-Cities.htm
