Coming Up with a Title

….for Farm To Fabre

There were a million things I wanted to do with this novella. And the title was less of an issue than figuring out the plot. It started life as a ‘next door neighbors’ sort of romance that slowly shifted into the second chance romance it is today.

A few things never changed from the beginning. One of the MCs was always going to be a farmer who enjoyed cooking. I think it’s about the only thing that didn’t change.

The location changed.

The timeframe changed.

I was all over the place when I wanted to write this story. But then the idea of two people who’d had this awkward encounter then panicked, being forced to spend time together in isolation, took hold. It evolved a little while writing, but that core concept remained.

So, in the end, unlike many of my other stories, the title was relatively easy to decide on once I’d given the characters names.

I’d started with this idea of Farm to Table.

But Farm to Table isn’t a new concept, and I wanted something a little different.

So…’Farm to Fabre’ it was.

And I enjoy a good play on words, so it stuck.
