Me: Well, I need to name this dog in this story.
My brain: That should be easy.
Me: *thinks*
My brain: *thinks*
Me: *Googles.*
*Googles more.*
*Googles more, and starts translating into other languages.*
*Breaks out hardcore naming materials*
*Gets distracted by Icelandic sheepdog's historical names based on fur patterns*
*Remembers dog in story is a Golden Lab, and doesn't have fur patterns*
*Learns about wildflowers.*
*Googles for two hours.
My brain:...how about Goldie?
Me: *sighs*

Research is my favourite part of story writing. Learning new things is my favourite part of life. But when I'm trying to actually learn a specific thing or do a specific thing and all these other things are desperate to get involved, it becomes very frustrating.

I still don't have a name for the dog. But it did take me, like, a week to name a cat for a story once, so maybe I just have a problem naming animals.
