I have decided to change the title of my book, the work I am doing as my creative thesis right now at Goddard College. Formerly, the title was:
Forgotten Lines, Remembered Years: For an Occasion as It Arises
This is a mouthful, and is also not very catchy. I generally referred to the book as “Forgotten Lines” for short. It was a title that required a nickname.
Here is the new title:
Arrows to the Hand: My Journeys Through Mental Illness and Wellness
I like it! My advisor, Darrah Cloud, has told me that it is not too late to make the change. I am so sold on this new title that I have gone ahead and changed my title page draft and a handful of other documents. Darrah says that a title should pique the reader’s (and an editor’s) curiosity. What about you? Are you curious?
