Name Needed!

AircatSkylion Nov 5, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I need a name for a story I'm doing. It's a bit of a joke, the story, but it's fun to write. It's a typical teen book, set in America, combining as many teen cliches I can remember and references to relevant movies.

It's a silly project but fun to do and I've not got anything major going on at the moment so I thought I'd do it.

At the moment the file is just called Teenbook. Any ideas for a good name?

Coming up with the perfect title is as easy as 1-2-3[ab]-4[ab]-5a-6-7-8-9

1. Finish your story
2. Write out a list of the main themes
3a. Identify the most important theme
4a. Find a relevant line in conversation, narration, etc. that mentions that theme
5a. Make that your title.
3b. Identify the most important character (perhaps the protagonist?)
4b. Name the title after him/her
6. Visualize your target audience
7. Adjust the title to appeal to that audience
8. Ensure the title, when printed on the book cover, is small enough so that a nice, large, easy-to-see-at-a-distance font can be used.
9. Ignore steps 2 - 8 because they're all getting in the way of you finishing the book.

How 'bout a cheezy one like "Love is hard" or "I need a love life" something like that than?
Last time I suggested something I got yelled at :(

I won't yell at you... just nothing inappropriate.

I know it's good to finish it, but I would like a title.
It's about a teenage girl in America trying to sort out her love life.

You were creative enough to come up with your own story, I'm sure you're creative enough to come up with your own title. Anyway, it's like the least important thing. Seriously.
