If I’m so dang creative, why can’t I think up a stupid name?!

It’s very strange, I’ve been trying to come up with a working title for my book for a while and nothing is sticking. This may be a good thing since I have heard many authors say not to get too attached to any title because if a publisher does pick you up, they will most likely change it.

I’ve had some ideas but either something very similar has been used or it just doesn’t fit. Just now, I tried again. I thought to myself, “Ok, what is the true focus of my story – is it the characters, the place, what they experience or go through?” I’m not sure I have an answer yet.

Maybe this is because I haven’t finished the book or because I’m not willing to decide just yet or because I feel they are all so interconnected, it can’t be just one. Regardless, I feel silly talking about a book with no name. (And no, that can’t be the title!)

In time I guess it will come to me. Maybe one of my beta readers will have an idea. I have a sister-in-law that seems pretty creative with this genre. One of my best friends is a teacher and shares my love of reading, books and good fantasy so maybe she’ll have some input. For now, it’s still “The book” – sorry guys.

I’ll post again this weekend – I’m actually home and plan to get some writing done – freakin’ sweet! I’m not holding my breath but if I get on a roll, I may even finish the first draft!!! I’m that close. Once that is done, I’ll continue editing and fill in some blanks and possibly post some excerpts.

If you have any ideas or suggestions about naming a book, novel or story – please share! I can’t submit a manuscript without something at the top of the first page! (Besides “Please buy me!” of course.)
