Q & A of the day

Q: I have an idea for a story in which three loyal friends are shapeshifters, but I can't decide on a title. Can you help?

A: Of course the title has to be something that rings true for you, but do you know about oxymorons? Just in case you don't, oxymorons seem to be contradictions, but they really aren't. My favorite example of this is from "Romeo and Juliet" -- Romeo says "Parting is such sweet sorrow." Okay, so how can SORROW be sweet? That's the seeming contradiction, but since they're kissing and hugging as they say good bye, is IS sweet.
In your story, though the characters are always changing physically, they're always loyal to each other...So there's change and yet they're steadfast best friends. Maybe you could base your title on that idea.
That's what I did with Dark Sunshine!

Q: When are you going to be able to come to Texas?

A:I'll be there in April and I can hardly wait!

Q: Which states in the U.S. have wild horses?

A:Wild horses are mostly in the ten western states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah and Wyoming. Six states have already lost their entire wild horse populations. A few southern states have wild ponies or small bands of horses like those in Hawaii. A controversial term applied to wild horses is FERAL -- meaning once tame & now gone wild. Sadly, it's applied in many ways, so the protection or lack of protection is random.
