Title Troubles

Help! I am about 2/3 the way through a novel manuscript, and I have NO IDEA what to call it. It was fairly easy to name my first child, but my book? Not possible.  I know that if it is ever published there's a good chance the title will be changed anyway, but this is really bothering me. When I'm at the bookstore or library, if the title doesn't catch my attention, I don't even read the back cover, so working on my own book, "Untitled" has me a little stressed out. So tell me, what kinds of titles catch your attention? How would you come up with a title? Any tricks of the trade I don't know about?

  1. I tend to like shorter titles... but that's just me. Take a deep breath, don't stress, and you'll get it. I really like the name of your MC so maybe you should use that somewhere.
