I seem to have real problems coming up with titles for my fiction. I find it a real struggle. Other people I share my work with seem to have a better grasp of what fits. Usually it is my wife who helps me choose titles, though ‘Breaking Distance,’ which I entered for a competition recently, had its title suggested by a member of my Open University tutorial group; thanks again, Chrissy. 

I know I want to use a line of dialogue from the story for the title of my new piece, but I’m not yet sure which one. Current favourite is ‘What’s the forecast?’ That said, I might be wearing my Raymond Carver influences too prominently on my sleeve going this route.

Think I’ll sleep on it.
