Me too. I don't even have a title yet. Just the vague idea my plot will be the adventures and mayhem of some teenage monsters created with dice rolls and tables of the pen&paper rulebook "Monsterhearts". Because sleep deprived me thought it would be cool to have some random characters thrown into the ring.

(Don't get me wrong, I actually love the main cast I created through this method. Especially the strings system will certainly be helpful in the way it already connects the characters to several others before the game novel has even started. But outline and proper preparation? Nope. Nowhere close.)

Friday is my second favorite F word.
(my first is "food")

You'll always feel it, but can never see it. It's strong but shatters easily. You can give it away but never hold it. What is it?

Rebooting....
I had truly planned on getting a lot of plotting and planning done, but all my spare time went to MLing and organizing stuff. But I'm taking off tomorrow and Friday and will spend a great part of that time trying to sort out my novel. Fingers crossed I won't get side tracked with more MLing stuff. :P

Titles. Gack. Those are so hard!

I only have a mere premise and a little bit of information on my MC. Haven't even settled on her name for sure. XD

i get titles one of a few ways:

*i just 'get' one
*i have an idea, but i play with the thesaurus to get just the right words
*i write a phrase that's just perfect for the title
*other people give me one
*other people give me an idea....and then i play with the thesaurus to get just the right words
*i get one many moons after i've long since finished the story (such as the one i wrote in 2016 XD)

LOL - You have a similar process to me.

I love it when there's a phrase that is perfect for the title.

One year, the title came really easily for my novel. I was so excited by it that I purchased some artwork for the cover and wrote over 70K words that month on it. It just flowed. One day I really want to edit it enough to send off queries.
