Your Title Sucks

Okay, maybe it doesn’t. But chances are it does.

Why the harsh tone, Stuart? Because you are so sure it is good. Because you need it to be good, you cling to it like a life raft. Without this title you would drown, or at least be adrift…

It’s okay: you can let go. For one thing, titles change with every draft. Every revision that is honestly undertaken evolves the writer’s perspective on the whole and therefore that whole needs a different title.

If you happen to get the final title before the end of the drafting process, congratulations; it does happen. You’ll know because it continues to check out so often you kind of lose interest in worrying about it, and that worry is replaced by a quietness around it in your mind.
