Good luck, Red!

Don't title it The Children are Safe. Will take the punch and chills away from the ending. If I think of something in the next, oh, minute or two, I'll pipe in.

FWIW, for the novel thread, my baby is called "twilight girl is invisible". Twilight Girl has always been what I call my main character for this endeavor, that's where my screen name came from. On MDC, there is a red button under my name, and I put the cursor on it once, and that is what it said. I loved it for a title of my book!

So, don't forget to look in unusual places for inspiration!

Good luck and KEEP US POSTED!!!!

or

Parental Consent Required

I've GOT to decide!


I like Permission Slip. DD suggested Reforming Education, or Reforming School. I like Quality Time. I have to decide within the next few minutes, and then go to the library, print it and mail it out!

YOu were absolutely right about The Children are Safe. Giving away the end would be a mistake. Thanks! I laughed over using "Red is Invisible" ! Funny how Twilight Girl is Invisible sounds SO cool, and Red just doesn't. Great idea for a title!

The only thing I don't like about Reforming Education or Reforming School, is that they sound like essay titles, not short story fiction titles.

Ooh, I like 'Extended Day'. Ominous.

Good luck!

: I'm NOT happy with the title. I just called it Quality Time. And I've been kicking myself since the socond it hit the mailbox!

However, it's DONE and mailed and I'm really happy about that.

I won't know how I did until November 15th. Seems like a lifetime!

Oh, sweet torture! That's a looooong time away isn't it?

I think the title is fine. Don't worry, the story is good, and it certainly wouldn't be rejected because they didn't like the title, right? They might suggest a change to the title, but the story is very solid. I think you've got a good chance!!!

Thanks! I feel really good about the story itself. I know I did my best. If it wins I'm going to start referring to myself as.....an author!: Having never had anything published I'm not comfortable doing that now.
