First of all, thanks to all of you for commenting on my last post! Looks like #4 wins! I'll let you know how it turns out (I'm not holding my breath though!).
Let's talk about titles today. We all know that publishers often change the title of the stories they buy, but for me, it's hard to write without at least a working title. For my current WIP, Anemone, I had the title before I even wrote one word. The story was more born from the title rather than the title from the story. But for Still Loving Ghosts, I had several chapters written before a song I had on repeat spoke the title to me. I'm attached to both of these titles, obviously, and it hurts to even think that they might change one day, but I do understand that it's a possibility.
What about you? Title first? Story first? Are you so very lovingly attached to it and will fight to the death for it if it's threatened, or do you think it's lacking and can't wait for the pros to come up with a better one?
