I successfully trimmed my short story from 15,800 words down to 14, 670! Now I can have it critiqued and sent on its way. I feel so relieved:)
I'm having issues with a beloved friend right now. She took my head off verbally last night, and instead of losing my temper right back, I bit my tongue and quietly told her I never expected her to drop everything and come see me.
And today, I very nicely sent her an email, stating that I certainly understood her stress level and to please talk to me if she needed to vent. And reminded her I didn't know her new schedule; I had expected to find her relaxing instead of working. So far, I've not gotten any response, but I hope she calms down soon and either emails or calls me.
Especially now that I've completed an interview and finished with a WIP.
Next problem: I need a title.
My story is about a young chef who finds herself involved with a newly-returned member of the country club in which she works.
Taste of Love?
Cooking up Desire?
The Way to a Man's Heart?
Appetite for Love/Desire?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
