When I wrote my first book, I came up with the title on the same day I finished it. I love the title. (It’s Redefined Dreams, by the way). After talking it over with my mom for about thirty minutes, I did it. When I changed the file name on my computer, just typing the title melted my heart. I had written a book.
Well, as many of you know, I won my first NaNoWriMo! (Yay!) I have sat back and only this past weekend did I open the file again to start fine-tuning it. I’m very proud of this book. It was my heart and soul for a whole month. I even think that I love this book more than my first one. When I submitted my NaNo book into their word counter and it told me that I won, I was awarded a certificate. I’ve filled in my name several times, but can’t bring myself to fill in a title. I have no idea what to name this book. I’ve discussed it with my husband and several other family members, but still I have nothing. I want nothing more than to print it out, and to hang up in my office! I want people to ask about NaNo and about my book. Now, if I could only come up with a title…
I ask you now:
- How do you come up with the title of your book?
- What do you do when you’re racking your brain to come up with a title?
