Naming Your NovelNaming Your Novel by LauraMizvaria
*This is also helpful for other types of fiction and possibly even non-fiction.*
Note: How careful you have to be naming your novel depends heavily on if you are planning to sell it, and how you are planning to sell it. If you are an unknown who is self-publishing and you want a lot of people to read and buy your novel, you need to do extensive research on the market. This article only covers a few tips, and I am in no way a publishing expert. But, even if you don't plan on going mass-commercial, that doesn't mean you shouldn't spend some time deciding on a name for your labor of love and I hope this article provides some useful ideas.
Consider important items--does your story revolve around a magical staff, sword or pendant? For example: "The Staff of Alema," "The Sapphire Sword," or "The Destiny Pendant." (I know these are cheesy but you get the idea).
Consider who your protagonist IS--is it an assassin, a magician, an apprentice
My Pretty MirrorMy Pretty MirrorKeiggy
My mirror I loved my mirror, more than my husband himself more than myself. That is when I realized I had to get rid of it.
My husband brought that mirror shard to me as a gift. I got sick, so sick I barely moved. My husband told me I should get rid of my mirror, because the more I stared at it, the more I admired it, the sicker I got. I ignored him, I told him it was mare coincidence, I told him to back off, to leave me alone, to leave me and my mirror alone..
My mirror most people would say it is a stupid piece of glass, since it is broken. It has markings, not Hylian, no I knew that language, from an ancient book of history, it was twili. Though I couldn't read it.
Then one day, that young man in green pleaded me to hand him the mirror. I was in luck, the mirror was safely locked in my room at the top of my home's tower.
