Well, I’ve decided I hate one of my story titles and it is the suck, so I spent some time yesterday trying to come up with a new title. See, the old title was “Women’s Work” and was supposed to be a subtle coded hint about some backstory thing, but subtle hints and titles don’t mix, and also it is the suck. The working title was “Gatecorp,” but I thought that was smeerp-y, so I never used the term “Gatecorp” anywhere in the story. Yesterday I considered “Forte,” since there is music in the story and there is also much work-competance, but… too metaphorical. “Gatecorp” at least has the advantage of setting the story firmly in the corporate world.
As I was falling asleep, my brain coughed forth, “Roberts Mining Corporation: Forte in C Minor.” It may be too metaphorical, but it helps set the time and place and I hate it less, so it stays. 😉
Anyway, I plan to change it if the place that has it in slush doesn’t want it and sends it back.
