It’s something I find interesting to hear from other authors. Did your story stem from the title you came up with, or did your title inspire the story in the first place?
Some create their new world full of characters that’s all their own, and the title stems from the story itself. Others become inspired by their title, and the story starts from there, taking on a life of its own.
For my book, it was the story that inspired the title, though I wasn’t even thirty pages in when the title hit me full force out of nowhere. It helped inspire the story even further and ended up foreshadowing a theme I hadn’t even realized I’d begun.
Has that happened to you, or are you still stumped with what to name your work? I’d love to hear your stories and thoughts on this, fellow authors!
