Terrible Titles

{This has nothing to do w/the hop, I just think this cover is cute.}

I was tagged by the lovely Alison Miller to participate in the Terrible Titles Blog Hop. The rules are to pull up your manuscript and randomly stop while scrolling through. Whatever words/phrases your cursor has landed on will become your eight terrible titles.  

So here are my terrible titles from my YA dystopian that I'm currently revising:

1. Out His Nose

2. A Terrible Strain

3. Didn't Need Stitches

4. Past My Navel

5. Scrap of Silk

6. From His Hands

7. Maybe Goats

8. Chews on the Side

Oddly enough those last two weren't anywhere close together. *grin* And does anyone else think #6 sounds like it could be the title of either a risque romance or an inspirational romance? Heh! Thanks to Alison for the tag, this was fun! In turn, I'm going to tag Sarah Foster, Sioux TrettMeradeth Houston, and Rochelle Deans. Have fun, ladies!

    1. Nose, navel, hands- I write about body parts more than I realized, lol! And it was, and no, thank you! =)

  5. I love yours! And you're right: In His Hands could be risque OR inspirational. Depends on whether the cover depicts masculine hands or sunlight filtering through the trees. ;)

    Thanks for the tag! I've been wanting to do this, but didn't want to do it without the tag. Off to find a version of my MS where the whole thing is in one place!

    1. Uh-huh, and where exactly those masculine hands are placed. *wink, wink* =D Glad you were wanting to participate already, this works out well!

    1. I think you're right! It could be Didn't Need Stitches: Tales of Childhood Mishaps. And I never thought I'd write any non-fiction... ;)

  7. Love this! I wasn't tagged, but I'm totally going to play. My personal favourite is definitely Didn't Need Stitches. I see YA or MG potential all over that one. ;-)

    1. I'll get right on that... not! =D Crap, though now I'm thinking a picture book w/a goat character would be cute...

  9. Leandra, these are fun to do. And who knows, you might just come up with the inspiration for another book.

  11. LOL! Those are some awesomely terrible titles. :D I was tagged by Marcy Hatch to do this and haven't had the chance yet. Maybe later this month. I could use the laughs.

  12. Excellent! Out his nose reminds me of the gross popular children's present this year - bleurgh! x

    1. I kept seeing an ad for a kid's game this year that was just disgusting (it involved part of a dog's anatomy)! No way will I ever be buying it. =/

  13. These are awesome, lol. And I can't help thinking that "Maybe Goats" would make a really good title, for the right book. It's kind of intriguing.

  14. These are all pretty darn funny, but Out His Nose is my favorite and Maybe Goats is a close second. It's fun trying to imagine what the heck the context of all these terrible titles would actually be! :)
