Title: picture book title
Post by: shamia-wilcox on September 30, 2020, 03:47 PM
I had a book title, but I changed the story after revision and now I am having a hard time coming up with a catchy title.

Do you have a critique group who has read the story that can help brainstorm titles?

Titles often change after acquisitions so I wouldn't get too bent out of shape finding the "perfect" title.

Best of luck!

Can you brainstorm? Pick words or phrases from your revised version? I find I get all sorts of ideas while walking or showering. Have fun!

I have the same problem sometimes. There's no easy answer. Sometimes you just have to sit with it and wait for a title to show itself, which can take some time. (In my experience.)
