I finished reading the 311 pages of Sam’s story and let it sit for the weekend. I’ve spent today trying to plug the changes over from the hard copy to the computer. (I’m finding it very frustrating that even with my second pair of special distance glasses, I’m still seeing text amazingly similar to the chart to the left where text is ‘ghosting’.) So the whole process has been a real slog. But I’m happy with it. When I let myself be.

Next challenge? Sam deserves a proper title for his story. Gizmo Guy has been playing with various ideas and emailing me with them but nothing’s really hit me yet. Since the first story is Private Property, I had it in my head it should be Public something or other. But I want to stay away from another title starting with P as I figure it may be too confusing for readers. So while I was reading through all those pages on Friday, and again today, I’ve been looking to see if there are any phrases buried within the text that jump out at me. Um, nope. Other than ‘thumbs up’ which I use a few times, but really? That’s not an appropriate title for this story. Although, Amy might point out that it’s got a double entendre all its own. Wylie says it’ll come on its own, and most likely at 2 a.m. I hope so. And I hope it comes soon.

Sony Reader update:

Samhain books are now available on the Sony Reader. Happy Dance, since I can’t buy them on a not-yet-available-in-Canada Kindle. Another reason I have to love my little gift from Gizmo Guy. And I gave it a thumbs down at first. Shame on me.

    That ghosting must be terribly annoying!
    Actually, that’s not far off what i see at night if there’s not proper lighting on the road. Which is why i avoid highways after dark at all costs.

    As for the title, it’ll come… it’ll come! Just stop thinking about it, leave your mind open and it will suddenly poof in.
    And if that doesn’t work, “Keep Off the Grass” sounds nice.

    Hail to the Chief?

    I have no idea, you’ve got me absolutely stumped.

    Seriously, you’ve been calling it Sam’s story for so long I can’t think.

    Then again I have a really hard time with my own titles.

    Relax, listen to music that would inspire the story.

    Dangerous Grounds?
    Dangerous Duty?
    Guarding my Heart?

    I think of Sam, I think of dangerous.
