04:57 pm - Title before plot?
This is what I get for thinking too hard about SG-1 fic.

Point of Origin

desperately needs to be the title of a (possibly short vignette or action-adventure short) fic, because the Ori call their "religion" Origin (sp?), and because the symbol unique to a planet's individual location is refered to as its "point of origin"....

Ahem.

As you were, while I ponder this.

Don't you hate it when you have a great idea, but you can't figure out how exactly to translate that into a story?

Yes.

It's just that I have a feeling that this title could have a meaning 3 or 4 layers in depth, in this fandom. Argh! *prods brain*

Yes! I hate that too! Much of my writing life seems to fall into that category. Oy.

And you and I still need to figure out what we're doing for our thing... for once the festival's done. :)

But that's fun stuff and I agree. Must be a title somehow. Hee.

I find this works best with double-meaning titles. By the time I figure out how to make the story seem to be a reflection of the more common meaning and have it actually be better represented by the less common, a plot has generally grown itself.

That's what I keep thinking: if I can find all the layers (cause there's more than two, here; Origin and point-of-origin-symbol and being the starting point for something that spread and being a centerpoint for "Origin"), and lay them over one another, as it were, then where they intersect, I'll find my story.
