What's in a Title?



In my other life, I teach reading and writing.

Tip #1
One of the secrets to becoming a good reader that we teach is that you can use the title to help you understand the book you're reading.

If it's fiction the titles often tell you the




main character,




theme



problem,

or a turning point to pay attention to in your reading.

As writers --
we can use these ideas to help us attract attention to our stories through the title we choose.

What's the title of your Work-In-Progress or a book you like? What kind of title is it?

I don't name my books until I finish them while they are a WIP I call them by the main characters first name so currently I have Delia's Story and Bre's story. :)

I loved this post. It is so true--at least when the title is a good one. Your examples were perfect.
