Watching you watching me

How do you decide on your book title?

If a story occurs to me, I sometimes scribble down the imagined title it might become…

Tea and tulips

The Parisienne and the flower boy

Just a title to embody where my thoughts are straying. That is fun and easy.

But when you are writing your novel, how is it for you? I find it quite hard.

The thrust of the book is there, and what I might want to say. The plot could define it, or the characters on its stage. Perhaps a chance comment within its words?

Often a publisher will want to change the title the author has chosen. Or a film studio. Or the readers!

Here are some more thoughts on titles. Enjoy!
