I completed my final draft for July’s Size Riot quarterly size fantasy flash-fiction contest last night. Came in at 2900+ words. I figured I could whittle it down today and I did. I like the longer version, though, and it will be duly posted here when the results are announced.
What I didn’t have was a title. Still don’t. I often start writing with a working title, but this is the first time I’ve gotten to the end without something suggesting itself.
I spent the afternoon discarding one idea after another, and then Aborigen extended the deadline until Monday evening. Deadlines serve a purpose and I’d really rather not look at my story again right now. I hope I can come up with a title this weekend without having to re-read it.
