It’s now day 3 of NANOWRIMO challenge and I’m moving along. Yesterday I produced 1738 words on day 2. Not bad at all. At least I’m doing a little bit more than my 1667 goal a day. If I keep the momentum, I will be able to make the 50,000 words by Nov. 30.
- For today’s tip, here is a very important tip – Have a memorable title.
Whenever you write something, have a great title. Something that will grab someone’s attention. Something different or unique. My first book was titled “BAHALA NA (Come What May)”. Some people might not be able to pronounce it right but it was different. Then I added a secondary title “A WWII story of Love, Faith, Courage, Determination and Survival” which gives the readers an idea of what the book was all about.
Like this book pictured here, Bruce Catton could have used “The End of the Civil War” but “A Stillness at Appomattox” was eye-catching. It is an interesting read if you enjoy reading Civil War stories. It is heavy with battle description and at times, you wonder how the North won the war.
For new author, it’s rather important to have an attention-grabbing title. Make the title stand out. When you are a published author, title might not be important as your name, then you can switch to making your name bolder. But for now, the title of your book should grab the attention of the reader.
