Memoir/Family History: Create Interesting, Memorable Titles

Nan Barnes

[Over the next few weeks we will be highlighting articles on creating memoirs and family histories added to the Author Tools section of the Stories To Tell Website. Let us know if you find them helpful]

The titles you give your book or the chapters in it should accomplish two things:

  • It should draw the reader’s attention.

  • It should make the reader wonder, “What’s this book about?”

A good way to develop a title is to ask yourself:

  • Why would someone want to read my story?

  • What makes it interesting?

  • What are the key elements of the story?

Answer the questions with a title.

Good titles are generally:

  • Unique

  • Short and Simple

  • Descriptive

When you think you have some good ideas ask friends about them. They’re the target audience. What they have to say should make your choice of title much easier.
