the bactrian inevitability
So, you have to start with a title. I mean, that's kind of before you even start writing -- it's what people will see before they even start reading it. I thought of a good title and wrote it down here, so I wouldn't forget it.
The thing is, "The Bactrian Inevitability" sounds like a book title, because it takes that familiar form of article--adjectivized noun-- noun. The Andromeda Strain. The Mists of Avalon. The Princess Bride.
I have no idea at this point what it's about or who'll be in it, except for old Dub, a geezer curmudgeon who sits on his front porch drinking Buds and smoking Marlboros whlle softly cursing under his breath at the traffic rolling by his door.
