I also tend to wind up with titles that basically refer to the Main Character. A lot. Granted, I've also got titles that aren't along that vein, but they are few and, surprisingly, they're also all sequels.
But most recently, whilst I was trawling through the shops looking for a few Boxing Day additions for my bookshelves, I'd an epiphany. Well ... if I'm honest, a certain pointy-eared Main Character and a title popped into the forefront of my mind. I know the character even if I don't know much else.
And just what was the title he gave me?
Through Smoke and Fire
So now my newest WiP has a title. What I don't have is a reason as to why my current work should be called that. Is it referring to the end part of the story? I have no idea. Do you know how annoying that is? Very! It's officially bugging me in ways I don't like to be bugged.
So yay for a title. Now I just have to make sense of it...
