Brain Storming




I am having a terrible time trying to come up with a title for my book. The few titles I had considered are already taken.

I had considered 'Chronicles of the Jungle Mom' but another expat woman seems ot have beat me to it! There is even another blog titled 'Jungle Mom'. I found a 'Memoir of a Jungle Dad-Mom' as well as 'It's a jungle Up There'. Can you believe there is even an advice book written by the 'Queen of the Jungle'? And don't forget the original 'Jungle Book'. So, what is a Jungle Mom to do???

Any suggestions for a title?

Oh, wow. Joy has some good ideas. I'm not much help with titles unless I know a ton about the book. Maybe you should try something with alternate words for jungle? And don't ask me what because it's the end of the day and I'm beat!

I love Motherhood: Jungle Style (Jen's suggestion up there). That's cute. :)

Mrs. Reverend Doctor said...

That's a toughy, maybe "God's Church in the Jungle"

redneck preacher said...

How about, "Eating worms for Jesus"

or, "My kids can make it rain"

or, "Grace with a dirt floor"

You get the idea. What do you want your title to do?

Everyone is buying secret books now. Maybe "Secrets of the Jungle" or "The Secret of the Second Hut." Something like that. Make sure to put the secret way to get saved at the end LOL.

The main thing is to get the book done. If some of your posts are any indication, it will be very moving.

My dear...
LA GRINGA DE LA SELVA!

hehehe! I know, I know... it must be in english! just kidding.

Gayle said...

Maybe it would be best to just leave "jungle" out of the title, Rita. After all, there are scads of great books where you have to read the entire book to figure out why they used the title they used.

Perhaps "The Hut".

Rosie Cochran said...

Aha! That's what you needed edited! (At least I'll presume so!) I think they've given you lots of options!

Pilar Stark said...

I was thinking along lines of
"my views from my hut" but did not like it
so then went to
"The veiw from my hut" to

so i finaly settled on
"from inside my hut" or something along those lines

Looks like lots of commenters have beaten me here and given you wonderful suggestions!

Kathy said...

Hi! I kind of like the vein Autumn has going. I'm still thinking.... The right title will come to you in the middle of the night. Keep a pad of paper and a pen on your nightstand!

redneck preacher said...

It is probably too late for this but I would like to respond to The Hermit who said as a suggestion for the book title...

"My life amongst the Savages."

If I were to write a book from Cloverdale his title would work for me.

I think you should name your book by the same name as your blog:

The Jungle Hut
