Listening to the Psychedelic Furs Talk Talk Talk, "No Tears," etc. Love that song.

We don't talk about the rain in San Diego enough. It rains here, people. It rains. We tried to go to the mountains but couldn't because it was raining.


I'm not into obscure words as titles.

I've done it myself. I have a poem called "A Ukase." But the poem explains the word, and I'd never title a book "A Ukase."

I'm not into French words as titles. Maybe if you as author have some connection to the French language beyond having read some French theory, but even then I think it's dubious.

Just watched "Kiss me Deadly." The government seems to think that information isn't relevant to context and vice versa. So things blow up.

what about made up words that are supposed to look obscure and intimidating. I think maybe that's ok. just not real words. admittedly it's on the cusp.

Well, I guess it depends on the made-up words. Obscurity and intimidation have fairly limited ranges, so I'd want the made-up words to be doing more than that, at least.
