I have no title for the novel I am writing. Not even a working title. I also know it doesn’t matter that I don’t have a title. I do spend time thinking about it though, and I came across a blog post by literary agent Rachelle Gardner, which you can read here. In it, Rachelle suggests a series of steps to help unlock a title for your book. I have been working through them, and it’s been an excellent exercise in focusing on themes and words that are key to my novel. As a result, I have a possible title, and at the very least, a clear direction for it. Thanks to Rachelle for bringing that clarity.
