I don’t know how to title!
June 4, 2013 § 3 Comments
There’s this ongoing joke on my facebook page where I frequently upload screenshots of the titles of my word documents.
I cannot title, this is by now a common known fact amongst my facebook friends. It takes me hours, sometimes days and weeks, of wracking my brains to come up with a decent title for one of my works. Often I leave them as they are, a silly Word Document title, until I’ve decided to submit the piece to a literary magazine or something of that sort.
It’s pretty annoying, especially considering how important titles actually are. Often, it is a title that will make readers latch on to your work.
Some of my favourite book titles, that made me immensely interested in reading the actual books, would be Their Eyes Were Watching God, Speak, The Knife of Never Letting Go. Are you guys any better with titles than I am? And what are your favourite/least favourite titles? Let me know!
