Why are titles so hard to figure out. I know what I teach to my students. I teach them to look for titles in their already written words. Look for characters I tell them, or important objects or even the setting. There are a million meaningful titles available to you if you only look. The title is the first impression to the reader. Are you going to capture their attention with your title, you had better, or they will not even read the rest of your radiant words. There are so many perfect titles:
Of Mice and Men
Romeo and Juliet
The Hunger Games
The Secret Life of Bees
These titles all say something important. They tell us some secret about what is contained in the pages and words. There is nothing more satisfying for me then finding that perfect title to go with something that I have written. Titles are not something to be overlooked in the writing process. They are a bit like the icing on the cake of a delicious read!
