A title a day* helps keep the doldrums away. As a writing exercise, can you create a story from it without nudging and winking?

Awful Disclosures of Maria Monk: What I Have Written is True!

Modern Fiction (London) Ltd, undated

Note: On the cover, Maria wears a nun’s habit.

I picture a magician’s assistant. (Wonder if I’m creating a chain story, starting with Willie’s Ordeal.)

*From the snickery book of real titles, Scouts in Bondage and other violations of literary propriety, ed. Michael Bell.
