fucking hell titles are hard. so are writing markets.

things that need proper titles:

1) Camp NaNo novel
2) fluffy queer romance short
3) "good fucking gods does this reaction to 45 have enough fucking content notes on it yet" short

things that need paying markets to buy first pub rights for them from me:

1) "Light and Storm", the Leto short
2) fluffy queer romance short
3) "good fucking gods does this reaction to 45 have enough fucking content notes on it yet" short

(I'm not kidding, it has thirteen content notes and I'm still thinking I missed a few)

(also Camp NaNo novel will eventually be wanting an agent to do the hard part of finding a traditional publisher to buy it, but that can wait till there's at least a first draft)

and my usual approach of "title = song lyric!" isn't going to fly unless the lyric is the song title, because US copyright law has a lot of bullshit in; "title = poem quote!" works better in that respect but lacks a certain...hm. memorable originality?

on a related note! people who try to publish origific: is it worth $6/mo (or $3.33/mo for $40 up-front for the year) to subscribe to WritersMarket.com $30 for a print Writer's Market 2017 with free year's subscription to the associated dot-com? like, recall I have no money? but I really want to sell these short stories and have no fuckin' clue where would want them?

(I mean, the Pagan/Polytheist Calls for Submissions group on Facebook exists? and occasionally someone even posts a paying market? but not often! and I explicitly want to send "enough fucking content notes"—which I think has a real title now: "Courage: I Remember—I Say Her Name"—to somewhere that is explicitly looking for dystopias, and the word "dystopia" has been used once in the history of the group.)
