My untitled story has troubled me in the sense that I have never had problems naming my stories. My struggle has always been with character names but not so in this novel nor in Mars. I have just been referring to it as the untitled story and even the file itself on my computer is… Continue reading The Elusive Title
I finally banged out some editing last night. I went from page 100 to page 106, leaving me with only 16 pages left to edit.
