Name that character!
Writing about my past, I use some of the people I've known as models. Just as a painter converts a live model into something quite different on canvas, I convert live memories into something new and independent on the page. The first step is to change the name. With that change, I gain the freedom to create.
Please help me. Right now I need to name two female grad students. One is in History, one is in English. At Stanford. They rent a scruffy little bungalow in a bad neighborhood. They appear perfectly normal on the outside except for one thing: They share the use of a big old white 1963 Cadillac. What are their (fictional) names?
And if I choose your suggested pair of names, what can I offer you as a prize?
