Obviously, it's important to have a good title for a book. Or a blog post. Or a blog. But if you're like me, you're not good at on the spot naming and end up with some bull like "Still Writing..." I also once gave a book the creative moniker of "Story" until halfway through the first draft. I think this is partly due to the fact that I can't name something until I know it and since I don't outline beforehand, the first draft is the first time I "meet" the story.
Even then, it's hard to pick out a good one. This is the name of my book! I don't want to saddle it with something that will get it beat up in elementary school. Plus it has to be appropriate for the genre, the story, the themes...there's a lot to consider. If I ever have kids, naming them will be a lot easier than naming my books. Kids don't have themes! I assume.
How do you know when a title is the right one? It's not as simple as "you just do." So I have more questions to ask you. How do you name your work? Does it take a lot of consideration? Do you change it a thousand times between drafts? How hard would it be if you were told you had to come up with a new one?
Inquiring minds would like to know.
