Titles Without a Tale

Every now and then I have a flash of an idea that turns into a title for a poem or story or expository piece for this blog. Sometimes these ideas pop fully blown into my head leaving me to type as fast as my fingers will allow. Sometimes I have to coax them along to fruition. Sadly, often these ideas go no further than the title stage.

I’m still suffering from some mental lag brought on by a combination of travel stress and daylight savings time. Nothing other than the desire to nap, snack, and repeat has manifested itself into my brain in the past two days. So I went to the place where titles go to percolate or expire–the dreaded “draft” folder. 

Here’s one. What was I thinking? Wine must’ve been involved. And maybe paddles. Wink, wink.


Well, I guess this next one might’ve gotten a bit sticky….


And the age old question didn’t awaken my muse.


Here are a couple of ideas that so far have gone nowhere.


And maybe I could combine these next two.


Fellow bloggers, do you do this? Keep a file of “might work” titles? 


Some of these need to go in the trash file. But not today. Today I’m feeling desperate. 

Peace, people!

  1. I would borrow the ‘grey day’ and ‘trouble came looking for me’ – no one would even notice that these are borrowed. And also the ‘last night I made…’ – to confess the violation of my diet. Don’t scrap them, you never know.
