Conf 108: What's in a Title??

Woke up with a new title for novel 4.

The rejection e-mail from Hodder editor (conf. 104) said novel 3 seemed to be lacking the great thing - hook or title or setting.

This one is short, snappy, rhythmic and relevant in more ways than one to the story. Let alone its relevance, it's one of those titles you feel someone has to have used already, or is using somewhere out in the stratosphere right NOW. It's led me on to thoughts on refining the synopsis, the story as it stands can be far far tighter, to take note of this title. I am banging on. It feels very good, but in a few days, or even tomorrow morning sober, may feel otherwise.

Bye bye, thanks for visiting, come again soon.
