The Problem With Titles

Uncategorized

Hey WAPS! Do you ever find it hard to come up with a title that makes your writings appeal to readers? Such something that fits your writing, your that your writing fits around? Do want them to blend? Yes! Having a happy blend with titles is very important. You don’t want to mislead anyone, but you also want it to make your readers wonder what it’s about. Take these for example:

“When The Sun Rises”

What does that say about the book? ZILTCH. What does it say about the setting of the writing? I would guess it has something to do with pain and heart break. Now if you changed it to…

“Morning Sun”

It would sound like it was a country setting.

So what if you wanted to be a country horror setting. (IDK if these exist but if they do give me a link!!) It would sound like,

“The Sound of Morning Terror”

OoOoOoH

Would you read any of these?

The real problem is coming up with the title. Find something that makes the writting unique and shape it into something beautiful.And if you need any help coming up with a name of have any questions you can sign up to post on this blog and then you can ask us!

Tell me below which writing title you like better!

TODDLES!

What is your biggest hurdle in writing? Mine is coming up with names, but also constructing the world they live in. Will they have siblings? What is their favorite drink? Do they have an allergy? What if they have a pet?

The hurdle of writing. The Reading, the proofreading, the grammar checks, the rough draft, the rusty draft, the okay draft, the good draft, the great draft, THE FINAL DRAFT!

Wh do they call it the final draft? Because it’s like, “FINALLY! THE FINAL DRAFT!!”

What’s the point? If you want to be a published author someday, it’s good to write short stories first, make sure to learn a lot about grammar, and learn to do effective grammar checks, and get some constructive criticism. Try building off writing promts, and learn from there. Ask plenty of questions. And I mean questions like, “Why do apples fall? They have to reason to.” Or do they?

Poets are creative people. Very imaginative, and they mostly write in rhyme. Doodlers, dreamers, singers. Most poets draw or sing. Are you a poet? Do you want to publish poetry one day? In poems, patterns are almost as important as rhyming.

The red bird flys.

High in the sky.

The chickadee soars,

Early in the morn. *1

That followed a simple rhyme and pattern. If I had done this..

The red bird flys high in the sky.

The chickadee soars early in the morn. *2

It has all the same words in it but in a different pattern. If you wanted something quick, you’d chose pattern number 2. But slower and simple, you’d go with number one.

Authors, you’re published. You have a book, may have taken a year or two, but you did it. Here, you’re more of a critical person, but also someone who would give praise worthy advice. You’ve been there, done that, and it feels really good. Do something with that knowledge, and please tell me how to spell tuberculous. (Wait, did I spell that right?)

Thanks for reading this post, and be sure to write on to this sentence in the comments!

He had always been on my side. He’s always been there for me. He stopped talking to me after..

Keep writing WAPS!*

My First Blog Post

authors, Poets, Uncategorized, writing

A professional writer is an amateur who didn’t quit.”
β€” Richard Bach

Hi! I’m Mary Elizabeth. You probably know me from one of my 2 blogs, 4EverAG, or Middle Mary. I’m here because of my new novel I’m working on. It’s in the rough draft right now, and I’m still working on the book. I was working on it one day when I thought up an idea,Β What if there was a site where other authors could help me with my book?Β Because it’s hard creating characters and fixing plot holes and book covers… ECT.

I decided to break away from some sites that I no longer posted on to make this site.

How this site works is that all authors from around the blogosphere sign up to be on this site and post their problems. Other writers comment their solutions. You can also post some of your own writing or even plot fonts.

FAQ

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?

Well,Β  so that way everyone can read the advice given by me or every other author.

  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?

Writing of course!

  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?

Writers, Authors, and Poets. (WAP)

  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

A strong and steady community of WAPs.

A Word From WordPress

(Parenthesis are mine)

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about b[ooks] is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another β€” but it’s good to know where and why you started and articulating your goals may just give you a few other [book] ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, the author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a β€œcrappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point β€” just start writing, and worry about editing it later.
