I am a master at novel titles. Honest to God. I could write a book.
Or maybe not.
Seriously, though, I have a thing about catchy phrases that would make wonderful novels. I spilled quiche on my keyboard yesterday and I suddenly thought, "What a great title!"
And then the whole story unfolded before me. A food blogger returns home to help care for her dying, estranged mother and together they collaborate on a cookbook of old, family recipes - a legacy that Mom wants to leave behind.
It'd be a tearjerker for sure. I can already see Meryl Streep as the mother and they'd better damn well get Sandra Bullock as the daughter because I love me some Sandra Bullock.
Anyway, I come up with great book titles, but I don't always have the story to go with them. Here are a few of my personal favortites:
Chubby Hiney and the Great Chili Cookoff
Righteous Indigo Nation
Bob Marley's Raised Brow
Listing in the Wind
A Practical Guide to Hiking Without Pants
Oh, I've got a million of 'em. Too bad I don't have the stories. Not yet, anyway. But when they do finally bloom in my mind, they're sure to be magnificent.
And they'll have Sandra Bullock written all over them.
