Let’s Play #8TerribleTitles
It's after 11 pm on a Wednesday night. The teens show no signs of going to bed, even though they have to get up by 5:30 am. Hubs has fallen asleep on the couch with the dog. I am still working.
That's when my Twitter account pings. It's fellow Sweet Sixteens debut author,Brooks Benjamin, tagging me in a new and goofy blog hop.
I am always up for goofy. Especially at 11 pm when my chances of getting enough sleep are nil.
The rules are simple:
Scroll through your manuscript without looking (seriously, we’ll know). Stop at a random place and look at where your cursor lands. Select the phrase it’s on. Awkward? Inane? Unintelligible? For this game, that's perfect.
Repeat this seven more times for a total of Eight Terrible Titles.
This isn’t just for writers. No manuscript? No problem. Grab the nearest book and play along, but don’t forget to tag your friends for some ridiculous fun!
