How do you come up with titles?
Occasionally I have been able to work that way, but I think that (in my mind anyway) the stories suffer for it.
I spend a lot of time get the titles, working through quotations to find just the write sequence of words, or sometimes pulling it from bits of dialog that came to me during the character creation.
A few times even, the titles have come from song lyrics while I'm listening to the radio or CDs in the car.
Twice, and only twice, I've had titles sitting in reserve just waiting for the right story to come along.
The important thing, though, is that the title must do two things:
1. Compel a reader's interest to read the story.
2. Broaden the understanding of the story itself to the reader as he or she reads.
