Do you guys do writing advice? If so, what advice would you give someone who's stuck on a title for their piece?
Yup! Writing advice is one of the main features of Yeah Write. There are just a couple of pages I like you to check before you write in; more on that here.
But your question isn’t one that’s been answered before and is one that I have trouble with too! In some senses, titles aren’t important; they’re just the identifier you use to label a piece. But a title can help entice people to read your stories, and can also add another depth of meaning to your story—maybe it points out what you want the reader to think about before/after reading. I always try to think of something clever—like right now I’m working on a piece about both friendship and marijuana and the working title is “Buds” (harharhar, kinda cheap I know).
Anyway, that’s all I really have to say. I have a really hard time with titles. Anyone have some insight to share? Send an ask!
