I stink at titles. It's really hard for me to think of a title that is captivating and magical, one that encompasses the essence of the book in a few short words. This is why most of my working titles are the name of the protagonist. It's also an easy way to keep my stories straight in my endless maze of computer files.
I've been working on a WIP (work in progress) called Harley since April. I got about 18k in and took a break from it while I figured out what direction I wanted to take it. I picked it up a few days ago and I've been working to tweak some things in the beginning and to create an outline. I took a break from all that today to have a big of fun making a teaser poster for it to show some writer friends of mine. I'll unveil it here, much later, but while creating this teaser picture the title of the book suddenly hit me.
My WIP, formerly known as Harley, will henceforth be called, The Demon in Him.
Stay tuned, my next blog post may or may not contain the blurb for The Demon in Him.
Isn't that a swell title?
Do you also struggle with titles? How do you come up with yours?
