What's In a Title?

10,000 Little Moments of Life

I heard this phrase the other day and both Michael and I looked at each other and asked, “Isn’t that a title of a book?” We shrugged. I replied, “If it isn’t, it should be.”

I’m not quite sure what sort of book this sounds like. It could go many ways. Here are some suggestions:

1.      10,000 Little Moments of Life. A Freshman girl embarks on the school year still bearing the scars of a bad summer romance. Will she ever find love again? Will she find the strength to forgive her estranged father? Will she get the lead role in the school’s Midsummer Night’s Dream?

2.      10,000 Little Moments of Life. A memoir about growing up in a fifth-wheel trailer and road-tripping through the USA. Clam digging in Washington, flooding in Nebraska, mountain lion-sighting in San Jose, thunderstorms in Montana…

3.      10,000 Little Moments of Life. Twelve year old orphan boy Tucker stumbles upon a tarnished old compass while digging for gold in the mines owned by the ruthless Lord Pimble. He soon discovers this is no ordinary compass—it’s a magic compass that grants him a wish every time he does a good deed for another. When Lord Pimble learns about the magic compass, Tucker is on the run for his life. Danger, adventure, wishes—all the great components of a fantastic tale—are packed in.
