One of the ideas bouncing around my head still has nameless characters. I keep thinking that I like Ashley/Ashlee/Ashleigh, but when I see it typed out I’m not sure I can live with it for months and months. And the guy’s name is even more elusive.
Since a bulk of the story takes place where I grew up, I decided to pull out my high school year books to find common names. I still haven’t settled on the MCs’ names, but I’m closer.
Of course, flipping through a year book is never a quick activity…especially when looking at my senior year book.
For senior pictures, all the extracurricular activities that you did are listed under your name. Of course, they let you fill this out yourself and, it turns out, it was all on the honor system. My friends and I wanted to have more activities under out name than were legitimately there, so we made up a club. Apparently, I was the Siddhartha Club historian my junior and senior year. To be fair, I do remember spending several
lunch periods meetings complaining about that book.
Since we named the club after the book by Hermann Hesse, I think we were more nerdy than rebellious.
Anyone else have to read that book?
