    5. ____________ and Addison

    Genre of Story: Romance, Fiction

    Time period/Location: This story starts in the 80s and then skips to now. It takes place in a small town in Michigan.

    Brief plot: There is a boy (_________) and girl (Addison) who live in a small town together. They become best friends and then as they grow up, their lives head in very different directions. They don't drift apart much but Addison gets married and has a family. But when she is in her forties, her husband dies in an accident and she and _________ enter into an unconventional marraige. For some reason reading over this now, this plot description sounds way cheesier than it is. I promise.

    Character description: So I had picked Max as the name but I am just not loving it anymore. This character is the most important character in this story and his name will also be in the title so it has to sound good with Addison. He calls her Addison but everyone else calls her Addie. He is a christian. He is confident. He is brilliant. He isn't mentally ill, although most people think that he is. He's just extremely socially awkward. He is also an artist. He loves old music. Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, and Cole Porter are some of his favorites. His most prominent trait is that he is mysterious.

    It is driving me nuts that I can't come up with a good name that fits him. So please give me your thoughts on Max and some suggestions of a name that you think fits his character. Thank you!

    Hmmm... how about...
    Evan and Addison
    Robert or Robin ("Rob") and Addison
    Lorenzo and Addison
    James ("Jim") and Addison
    Martin and Addison
    Matthew ("Matt") and Addison
    Christopher ("Chris") and Addison

    Since you're not too keen on Max anymore, can you identify what it is that you used to like about Max? (Or even identify why you don't like it so much any more?) That might help you out in choosing the right name for this character.

    Best of luck!!
