    The only problem with using fake names is if at an interview you are asked something about this story and you forget which names you used in the essay. In a story of mine, i used first names only.

    hah!! and this is why you keep a copy of all your secondaries and essays; you can read your app before you go to the interview and hopefully that won't happen.

    Gosh, I have used TONS of fake names and I never even thought of this. LOL
