Teeth and other Troubles

Although teeth aren't strictly do do with writing, an infection under a molar is definitely slowing progress. Antibiotics and ibuprofen are helping, but my brain is slowing down and I'm using it as an excuse to sit and read, or watch TV rather than get on with current projects. Which is not good as there are two rather urgent things I can't ignore. The first is to find a title for a short story, which is ready to send, but still titleless. The second is to edit a novel that has been lurking in My Documents since 2007. Why the urgency? Well I foolishly joined the Romantic Novelists New Writers' Scheme and now am having horrible doubts as to whether my novel will fit into the right category. The instructions came with ROMANCE in capital letters. Why oh why do I never read the labels on things? It's about love that's true, but also about what women want from love and life. It does have romance and it all ends happily, so surely...
