This week’s prompt by Jude
In our creative writing sessions we frequently ask writers to find a title for the draft pieces they write. The intention is to find titles that are engaging and not common place. The book pictured is by well-known French crime writer, George Simenon, who was a prolific writer,publishing over 500 novels during his lifetime. This novel was published in 1949 and has a dated title – one you couldn’t get away with these days. Perhaps the French title was different. And better.
Your exercise is to write a story about a married woman who is lost and confused or is literally at sea somewhere. Give it a twenty-first century title. Four words long, like the one in the picture. But don’t include ‘the’.
