What does heroine in STEM field…how does that translate to mean anything? Im thinking about it…?? But, this is my first time playing so I know this is just me. I know Im gonna feel stupid for asking this but I tell my husband constantly…there is never a dumb question, so…

If you do a title with a W…well, in any title really…are you allowed to leave off the word the? Like if I read The Wormwood Variant, that would count? Just wondering…the rules and such. And, for some reason, while I would discount The in the rules, myself, when it comes to anything else, even A, I wouldn’t.

STEM is an acronym. It stands for “science, technology, engineering, and mathematics”. So the main character should be a woman that works in one of those fields. Hope that helps!

Typically the words A, An, or The can be ignored at the beginning of a title. I generally think of how a book would be alphabetized. So, if you were putting titles in alphabetical order, The Wormwood Variant would be listed as a W title, not a T.
