Creating the Right Title!
I am slowly making progress with my book 4, though other events do get in the way and as much as I push them aside, they have a habit of nudging me and demanding my time and attention! Though when I have managed to sit down and tap away at the keyboard of my lap top, lost in the world of my imagination bringing my characters to life as together we walk down the paths of happiness, love, loss and much more, I ponder about what the title should be for this book. As yet nothing has come to mind that says what I want it to say about the three families who share the twists and turns of their lives.
I ask myself would one word say it all, like Gilli Allen has used for her novel Torn. Or maybe use three words that will evoke emotion, as Joanne Lambert has used in one of the books from her trilogy, Love, Lies & Promises. Or even make it a sentence, that inspires intrigue as in Too Much Trouble In Paradise by Michelle Betham. All of these ideas sound a possibility, but so far nothing has manifested itself as one word or one sentence!
I have written and published three books so far, the first two titles came easily, my third book title, however, took some agreeing on, but I got there in the end. I know I will get there with this one, well let’s be honest, I have to! But how do you come up with the best title for your book? Did you know the title before you begin writing or did the title spring to mind when writing?
As always thanks for stopping by, it’s great to see you and keep smiling, I will if you will!
