To title or not to title!

There are just two days to go until I begin my challenge. I’ve taken part in NaNoWriMo, so writing a novel in 79 days shouldn’t be that difficult, except this time it’s for charity and I’m starting to feel the pressure. 

I don’t have a title for a start, and that’s the issue. Do I start without one? I’ve done that with short stories and the title has come to me at the end, but I’ve usually had a rough idea what the title will be for my novels. It would help to reference the work, too. When I’m giving up dates, the novel that is yet to be named will start to get old!

I did make it a little easier for myself by using familiar characters. I haven’t worked with Maddy for a while, but I’m sure I can immerse myself in her world and achieve my daily word challenge in order to finish on time.

I’m also giving readers an opportunity to take part by naming a character and a place/building. All suggestions will go into a hat and the winners announced Sunday, the day it all starts!

If you would like to get involved, drop your suggestions in the comments and I’ll add those to the hat!

Thanks for stopping by

Mel

    You are up for this challenge. You have a main character your are familiar with, so the two of you together can get this done. You will succeed, so don’t worry.

    Have a great weekend Mel. May you an everyone in your heart be safe, healthy, and loved.

      Thank you, I really needed a pep talk and maybe Rob Reiner shouting ‘you can do it!’ which sprang to mind when I read your supportive message. I’ve got this!

      Have a great weekend. I too, hope you and yours stay safe, healthy and loved.

I'd love to hear from you.
