message 1: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Jensen (kdragon) | 468 comments Sometimes, when I'm trying to come up with a title for my book or story and I can't, I get frustrated and become tempted to use whatever title pops into my head no matter how ridiculous it is. So let's have fun with this by coming up with some frustration-induced story titles.

For example: Screw Titles, Just Read my Dang Book... Please?

Or: Insert Story Title Here
