Terrible Titles blog hop thingy


Hello Friends,

I hope this finds you all well.
I know, I've been away from my blog for so long. In my defense, there was a long distance move, and the unpacking and getting settled in a new house. There was sending our daughter off to college. There was Nanowrimo and YallFest. Now there's the marvelous madness of the holidays. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!

But here I am now, because I was tagged by my lovely friend Katy Upperman for the Terrible Titles Blog Hop. She was tagged by Kate Hart (who is delightful--her debut, After the Fall, comes out in 2016). And so it goes.

I don't usually do these tags (read: I NEVER do these tags), because A) lazy and B) no time and C) they usually involve posting my writing online, which I don't do. 

But, I figured this is as good a reason to dust off this here ol' blog as any...and also, I don't have the heart to say no to Katy.

The rules of the blog hop are simple: Scroll through your manuscript and stop in random places. Whatever words/phrase the cursor lands on becomes one of eight terrible titles.

From my VERY drafty (Nano) first draft, HUSK (a working title, and it's terrible as is, so really any of the following bits might actually be an improvement!):


  1. about to get brained
  2. a shallow, blood-gurgling wheeze
  3. moving slower than panic demands
  4. the ghost of empty rooms 
  5. an island of peace in a sea of chaos
  6. he had come here to die
  7. want and need are unrelated
  8. swallowed into the mist

So, there you have it. Make of that what you will.

I won't tag others specifically, but please feel free to consider yourself tagged if you wish to play along. 

More posts with news coming soon.

In the meantime, tell me your bad titles...or what you've read lately and loved. Or tell me anything.


Love,
Lola

About Me

Lola Sharp
My name is Lola. (I'm not a showgirl) Yes, L-O-L-A Lola. It's the least of my worries. Let's move on, shall we? This blog is mostly about my misadventures on the journey to publication and beyond. My passion for lush prose, quirky characters, art, music, literature, performing arts and anything creative will be a major theme here. This journey of mine will not always be pretty. Much like rubbernecking a train wreck, I know sometimes you just can't help but look at the carnage that is often my life. So strap on your neck brace, helmet and 5-point harness and come along for the ride! Licentia poetica.
