Short story meme

By way of swan_tower - and I think it is a cool idea - and this is the kind of meme I can get behind!

Here's what you need to do:

Give me the title of a story I've never written, and feedback telling me what you liked best about it, and I will tell you any of: the first sentence, the last sentence, the thing that made me want to write it, the biggest problem I had while writing it, why it almost never got submitted to magazines, the scene that hit the cutting room floor but that I wish I'd been able to salvage, or something else that I want readers to know.

As per swan_tower's post, I make no promises that these won't turn into real stories - and for the same reason, because I'm kind of hoping they might.

Comments are now open. I look forward to hearing from y'all.
