Lots of title shops are open, so if you can't think of a good name for a story, someone else can for you.

I agree that the title is supposed to draw in readers. Perhaps you need to come up with something more interesting.

Try advertising.... post a link in your siggie to your story, tell your friends, and have them tell their friends.... etc, etc.

well, you have a point. Titles are supposed to draw in readers. i probably wouldnt buy a book thats cover said: Cary And The Whinnie The Pooh At The End Of The Rainbow! i suggest the same, but maybe people should give a story a try sometimes

Great points, my friend. I agree-- sometimes the title may be different, but I think that should be something that you'd want to look more closely at. If the title catches your eye, but sounds like something you may not like, you should still give it a chance. The story may be one of the best things you've ever read. That's the way I feel about Twilight. Vampires, romance? Those usually would've driven me away, but now I love the books... and the strongest of the Cullens o'course.

Thanks for the reminder, LHL-- hopefully it will help the stories get more views/reads!

Ooh I hate that. I understand that titles are to draw you too it, and I do sometimes say, that's a pretty banner, I'll read that, but I think we would all be better off if we just went around clicking random stories. xP

I definitely agree. What's sad is my friend admitted, though not shamefully, to judge books by their covers. I don't see why people should do that... you could be missing out, and the cover or title may be more interesting than the books in its self... (Say, a story with a great title, but not a great story altogether, or a story with a bad title and a great story)

Default Re: Don't judge a story by its title!

I just read this whole thread and I am feeling really badly for all of you that post stories to share and no one reads them. I have never, ever gone to the creative writing section and it is simply that I don't have enough TIME!!! By the time I check my regular e-mail, check WI, get on all my WW accounts and do the dailies, and then do some recipe combos (I am a recipe solver) I find I have spent a couple of hours on the computer and more if I have messages to answer !!! I LOVE reading, so that would be a section I know I would LOVE. If I ever do have time I will check it out, and I always post when I view unless it isn't something I can have any input on!!! When I first joined WI and no one knew me, I posted some really interesting threads, but nobody read them or commented. I don't know if it is more interesting when you see someone's name that you recognize? A lot of people join, post two or three or even a hundred times and poof they're gone never to be seen or hear from. I go on the birthday list every day and wish all the people listed a happy birthday and there are some that joined in 2007, or 2008 and haven't been on here since then!

Question Re: Don't judge a story by its title!

Ok, I'm going to plead ignorance here. I didn't even know there was a section on here for stories people write. There is SO much information to read on this site that I'm still trying to figure out my way around, which is not a bad thing! So if someone can point me in the right direction I would be more than happy to read your stories, as well as others' stories!
