I've got a title! How about you?

A wretched virus wrested away my holiday weekend, knocking me flat, and has continued snatching my precious non-work hours from their rightful summer devotion to [community profile] fkficfest/fkficfest ever since. In other words, while I have read four non-fiction books and watched three documentaries relevant to my prompt, and rewatched first-season twice — first-season is my happy place — since receiving my match, I still don't yet have a blessed word of actual story. Yikes! I try to trim down the idea in my imagination for every day I lose to this dratted plague.

However, I have achieved a tentative title! Not much of an accomplishment, I know — three words toward my thousand? ;-) — but it cheers me. Titles shape stories, for me, every time I open and save and see a file. Stories almost always go better when I know the title in advance. (So there, virus!)

Those of you writing for FKFicFest this time, how are your stories going? Those of you not writing, have you considered beta-reading (DW/LJ)?
