    Default I need help for a catchy tittle

    Now as most of you know I have been writing short true stories non fiction about places I have been, things I have done in life, more of a testimony than memoirs and have a crap load of them, and have decided to get off my butt and try and market some of them.....

    But I need a catchy tittle, and attention getter, as you know most of my stories have a lot to do with the water.....

    I have thought of these so far, and would be extremely happy of my TRN family's input....


    Oil Screw Margret Bell and her Master

    This one DDT thought it was going to be something "Different" than what it was, I don't think for a minute he has his mind in the gutter, but has had I would guess many brought before him that did...


    At the Mercy of the Elements

    Don't know if this one is taken or not or is fitting...


    Men go down to Sea for Fish

    Don't know again if it is taken or not.....


    Salt Water in my veins, my heart in my throat, and the smell of fresh caught fishes

    Is it too long?


    Ok Boy's lets Clanker the Anchor

    ?????

    I Swallowed The Anchor in Nicaragua


    Or this?
    To be called a "Has Been" I must surmise, is much Greater than to be called a "Nevah Been"... JW...

    An Ol' Virginia Salt's Sea Tales

    Workin' the Waters with My Ol' Man

    Just plain "John Wayne at Sea" would sell the most for the curious who must go past the title.

    I like that - "John Wayne at Sea." People will pick it up thinking of that John Wayne, and find it's about a real John Wayne.

    Plus, it leaves it open for a future volume, "John Wayne on Land."

    Don't burn up too many brain cells on a working title, though. That's something the publisher will decide, too.

    I like "Salt Water In My Veins and My Heart In My Throat" an "Swallowing The Anchor In Nicaragua".

    That would be a good title for a homesteader who decided to plant it all in Nicaraguan soil.

    How about "This is No Shit".

    If anything, it makes for a great opening line, even better than "Call me Ishmael."

    "Babble".

    I think the boat is going tomorrow your way, will try to get a pack ready to go out with seeds and a book that a good friend wrote, maybe you will find it a help, same sort of book, life stories. He is working on his 2nd and it is due in a few months. I will quiz him more about the process but I have a good idea about most of it.

    Thousands of "proven" authors, hard times, you may have to finance or find the right person, they are out there and your stories will sell, getting them into print will be the trick. Do some stories for magazines, let them be seen. A miilion magazines now, most taking freelance stuff.
