So, titles. They're a bit like naming a child - they've got to stick with them forever so they need to be awesome.
|A few favourites|
Titles are hard because not only do they have to say what the book is about very quickly, they also have to grab your reader instantly. If you're really lucky, a title will hit you early on. If you're like me, it'll take a while... a while like seven years!
Here are some tips for titles if you're really struggling:
- Use a central theme or idea from the story.
- Use a phrase or a line you really like.
- Use the lead character's name.
- Use a single word – short and snappy!
There are loads of title generators or games you can use to create titles too. Do whatever works best and enjoy naming your work! And once you've got your title, celebrate!
