So. The other day I got my very first editorial letter, outlining what was working in my novel and what wasn't. I was actually pretty happy to see that there was nothing unexpected, including the suggestion to jettison my title, PARADISE. Thankfully I have no problem saying good-by since I was never very attached to it. But now I have to try to come up with a new one, something that hints at the story. My editor suggested writing down all the words that have to do with my story in the hopes that something will pop.
Here are some of the words I came up with:
the wild west
I've got zip so far, but...it occurs to me that some of you are fairly clever and imaginative so I put it to you, after seeing those words and reading the query letter for the story (in the static pages at the top), does anything come to mind, title-wise? Have you ever had trouble coming up with a title for your work?
