As we say goodbye to 2016, and I do my level best to find some levity in the whole thing, I’ve come to a realisation, although I think the rest of the world got there before me. Nostalgia is the cure-all for the present tense.
It’s a time of year when we look back, in order to look forward. And I’m looking back so far in blogging terms that I’ve given myself a crick in the neck. It was January 2014 when I did my first Book Title Generator. Such a long time ago. I haven’t done a new generator since then…
It’s festive, and it’s my gift to you.
It’s the Christmas Book Title Generator.
My thanks go out to Anne R. Allen, whose idea this was. Because I can’t believe my luck, but I was invited to guest-blog over at her house once again this year, and I brought my book title generators with me. Along with the new Christmassy addition, there’s also a bit of a skit on how to journey through them over the festive season – hop over and have a look. (Stay awhile and browse around while you’re at it. Anne’s blog is one of the best resources for writers around. And did I mention she’s lovely?)
It’s a factory of delight just to be asked to guest on such a big blog in the first place, but to do this at Christmas is the marzipan on the antler. Do you know how smug this makes me?
I mean, really. You know that girl who just got engaged but can’t tell anyone about it until after they’ve gone and bought the ring and told their families? That smug.
You know the guy who’s been told he’s getting a raise which is going to make his colleagues green with envy and probably threaten to resign? That smug.
You know the dog who’s out for a long walk in damp woods with his most favouritest owner, who’s just been told he’s the bestest boy in the whole wide world? That smug.
In case you’re wondering, my title is Where Elves Might Rejoice. It would appear I am the mistress of some awfully equivocal elves. I’ll be having a word.
Hope you enjoy the generators. And if you haven’t seen any of them before, now is the time to dip in. Enjoy!
