I'm thinking about participating in National Novel Writing Month this year.
I have an overall plot (sort of), and a lot of particular scenes worked out, but the one thing I'm totally lacking is a title.
So I'm asking for some help with that.
I'm looking for something with a hard-boiled detective/crime noir feel.
The story is about my character Fontaine, an amoral, irredeemable thief and mercenary living in the future.
Fontaine's "world" is intended to be a blend of genres: crime fiction, action thriller, science fiction (with some comic book-y elements), etc.
The story will be largely character-driven, but in terms of the overall plot, Fontaine has something the government wants but can't just outright take (though they do try), so they're using her personal relationships - such as they are - against her to try to get it.
Vague, I know, but...
If it'll help, I have an unfinished Fontaine story (which I thought about retooling/rewriting for NaNoWriMo, but decided against it) that's titled "A Hard Rain."
That's the sort of thing I'm looking for in a title.
So leave your suggestions in the Comments.
(I know that, unless you're Scott or Stacy, you won't, but it's worth a shot...)
Oh, and if I do participate this year - I'm only about 90% sure that I'm going to - this blog will probably go silent for even longer stretches of time, but I'm sure the world will keep turning in its course.
I'm also not sure how/if I'll share what I write yet, but I'll keep you posted.
