More Titles!

Aren’t you excited? 😛 Anyway I came up with a few more–ones that I like better than the previous set.

These are in no particular order as I like them all about the same.

  1. Beyond the Dark Divide
  2. Imprisoned Hope
  3. The Edge of a Dream
  4. Dreaming of Destiny

The first one may not seem like it would fit, but I thought of all sorts of nifty symbolism for it, the divide being that which separates dream from reality as well as the “divide” or wall that keeps my MC physically imprisoned.

But I like the others too! Sigh. Well at least it varied beyond the whole “dream” title.

Title Woes

I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned before how I struggle with coming up titles for my WiPs. Last year for NaNo was the only exception that I came up with a rather awesome title (or at least I thought so anyway).

This year I am having the hardest time. Ive even gone and done random title generators in the hope that something comes up. The story itself is fairly simple sounding…a princess is locked away from the world by her tyrannical father and then she meets her “true love” in her dreams. Of course there’s a lot more to this–part of the story being that the two are the key in breaking her father’s hold on the kingdom and essentially the world–yet I cannot come up with anything. My sister came up with some that I’m OK with, yet I keep going back and forth between like five titles. Here’s the list, in order of how I like them:

  1. The Dreaming Princess
  2. Dream Away
  3. Dream Whispers
  4. Midnight Lullaby (don’t know if it has anything to do with the plot but I like the title)
  5. Dream Lullaby

As you can tell, they mostly have to do with dreams 😛 Anyway…wondering if I’m going on the right path with this? Argh. Please let me know which title, if any, you like. I’m also willing–OK, begging really–for any suggestions.

Still Here

Nope, I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth, although from reading my blog you’d surely think that.

I’ve been struggling with coming up with anything remotely resembling an interesting blog post–seems like the creativity well has dried up again–however, I’m trying to replenish it. NaNo is now officially a month away (go and check out the NaNoWriMo site today and sign up–you know you want to…) and I’m trying my best to form some sort of vague story outline for my book this year. I keep going back and forth between it just being a romance or some sort of fantasy book with a save-the-world type theme. I know those seem way different from one another, but that’s the direction it could go.

Also, I haven’t the foggiest idea of a title. Not even anything remotely interesting. I have a month…but you can be sure that I will be enlisting your helpful opinions on book titles 🙂

Anyway, I’ll end this post with a rather awesome song–one that’s been a bit of theme lately. It’s called “Still Here” and it’s by Superchick.

The Quest for a Title

I currently have a working title for my novel but I’m really on the hunt for one that is stellar.

Titles give me the biggest headache when trying to think of them 😛 I had a few I came up with but they all sound so…eh.I’m thinking, looking for things in my prose and waiting for the Muse to perhaps bless me with a little gem of one but nothing so far but silence. 😛

Anyway, what are some of your ways that you come up with a title?
