. . . with something a little different.
If you remember the Biblical story of Job, you may remember the words of Job’s wife. Few people recall much about her beyond the phrase, “Curse God and die.”
She did not actually say those words, but suggested to Job that perhaps he should. They had lost everything, including their 10 children. As Job sat on an ash heap, covered with boils and waiting to die, his wife uttered the infamous words – but why?
Now here’s the question: I’ve written a novel addressing that quote, but am stuck on a title. I’ve considered titling the story “Curse God and Die” (in quotes) but hesitate to do so for a number of reasons (that I’ll withhold for the moment).
So what is your reaction to that title? To keep things unbiased, I won’t suggest possible reactions – just give me your own first gut reaction by leaving a comment in the box below.
