I’m working on a short story and I need a title. This is for the 7DayStory challenge, yo. I want the story to be 3000-5000 words, and I have it outlined and very rough drafted. The working title is Point Counterpoint, but that isn’t really appropriate, although it was when I first thought the idea up.
Miss Garnet Satin, the main character in “High Stakes”, a vampire who owns a nostalgia shop called The Retro Fit, is ordered by dangerous guy Vlad the Roumanian to investigate whether or not his friend’s daytime guardian is guarding him or abandoning him. The supposed guardian is not staying in the house when he’s supposed to, because he’s afraid. Something is creeping him out. Garnet discovers it’s a ghost and why it’s haunting the place, and puts it to rest. [addendum pursuant to Jim Hilton's comment: Vlad the Roumanian and his friend are also vampires; the guardian is not.]
So Point Counterpoint is not a good title, although I may hold it in reserve for a future story in the same … er … vein.
I had so little response on my challenge yesterday, I ain’t challenging you guys no more. Bleh!
Here is a picture of a butterfly box to remind you to plant milkweed this year if you live in North America. Monarch butterflies love milkweed, and planting some will give the li’l wingsters something to sustain themselves with as they migrate to and fro. Besides, remember how much fun it was when you were a kid to open dry milkweed pods and blow the fluff around?
