I don't actually have a title yet-- they aren't something I'm very good at. I usually call things I write "that story, you know, the one with the thing" until somebody comes up with a better title.
Buffy ,'Get It Done'
The Great Write Way
A place for Buffistas to discuss, beta and otherwise deal and dish on their non-fan fiction projects.
Maybe something like "Shadow Boxes"?
(just off the cuff)
"Life in a Box"
"Box, Past Tense"
"Outside the Box"
OK, it occurs to me that I don't usually suck at this.
I have a page in my notebook with several of those written down, verbatim. Also a badly-drawn copy of the lid of my Dick Tracy lunchbox. And my math homework.
Sounds like the sort of notebook I used to keep in high school, except for the math homework, which, well, never mind. I, er, just didn't, is all.
Would an incredibly simple title ("The Compact" or somesuch) ring more bells, d you think?
I liked it, Holli -- what kind of thing do you want us to say about it?
Just a note though, that:
wondering is she had just moved in
is surely a typo for
wondering if she had just moved in
Thanks, John. My typing skills often... aren't. That's why I like as many people as possible to see something I've written before it's handed in anywhere-- less potential embarrassment.
Second draft of the box story. I didn't make a lot of changes-- fixed the typos and bad grammar, and added detail to a few thing. Here's the link. Other stuff on that page may be old, badly-written, and embarrassing.
Ok. this is another thread I didn't find back on WX. I am very picky about who I want to test things out on because I know if I don't respect someone's opinion I don't listen to their critisism or I don't think they were critical enough. I trust you guys though, so I think I'll give it a go. I have an ettiquite question before I post this thing though. It's 4 pages in Word. Is that too long?
