The delightful E.G. Moore (who’s worth checking out here), has been playing along in a fun blog hop where you flip through your current manuscript and the first place your cursor lands, you need to take the phrase and that’s a new faux title for your book. That sounded like far too much fun not join in, so I did.
And here are the results. My random faux titles taken from my manuscript This Shadow Life.
- Only Half Listening (that could be a bio about my hubby)
- Until the Sirens
- The Sound of Clanging Pots
- The Awkward Moments (my own bio)
- Into the Chicken Mince (someone please write that book)
- Past the Trees
- Packing Shelves
- She Changed Her Burgers (I don’t even want to think…)
I might steal one or two of those for a future project. And I might just leave a few of them well enough alone. Would any of them work as an actual title for Shadow Life? No. 2 could possibly work. 6 perhaps.
So, to my writerly-type friends – I challenge you to join in the fun and let me know if you decide to play along.
To my readerly-type friends – Open the book you’re currently reading to a random page, close your eyes and swirl your finger round, count to three and point. And let me know the new title of the book you’re reading!
