Twelve Mile Limit

This week’s Chuck Challenge was another cocktail one. Pick a cocktail name from a list of 20 and that’s the title of your story. I used Random.org to pick a number, before even looking at the list of names, and Twelve Mile Limit is what I got. And it’s kinda weird. So here it is:…

The Labyrinthine Helix

This week’s Chuck Wendig challenge on his blog was yet another Random Title one. Where you pick a word from each column and that’s your title.
