The first paragraph of my book [Aug. 19th, 2003|09:43 pm]

Any title suggestions?

--Why I wrote this book
I wrote this in memory of all the tears that have been shed. Of all the graves that have been dug. Of all the feelings of never being good enough, that all the people out there with this disease have felt and will continue to feel as the years go on. I wrote this book for everyone that has ever known this disease or someone with it. I have written it for those who have died. And, more importantly, I have written it for those who still live, who still have a chance to fight. I am one of those people, and I have fought. It was the hardest thing I have ever done, but I did it. And I am alive. Need I say more?

I like it. See, you're a really good writer too. You don't need to put yourself down.

The title will probably come to you eventually.

Thank you for the compliment--that gives me more confidence that I can finish this eventually and get it published. You can do the same with your book, and I'm very sure about that.
Hmm...does 'The Downward Spiral' sound like a good title? It sounds stupid to me but I need another opinion.
--Thanks

If you're not sure about it it can be your working title, and you can always change it later.

The title can be something completly random. Thats what i do. I really like your last sentance...and it would make a catchy title. I mean think of it
'And I am alive. Need i Say more?'
But maybe thats me. Sounds like it would be an interesting book. And your an awesome writer.

Thanks a lot--that would make a great title. I like books with random titles.
Thank you so much--that makes me feel a lot better about myself, and the story.
Talk to you later--Amanda

An excellent start! You are a very talented writer. I'm not very good with titles and such, but I also like 'And I am alive. Need I say more?'.

Thank you so much--I should be able to give you a free copy when I finish it, which should be in a few years at the most.
