What is the title of your book?

Post by Amagine » 04 Sep 2017, 02:07

If a book were to be written about you and your life, what would be the title of it? What would your book be about?

Maybe... Mountains and Valleys? It would be about perseverance in spite of the difficulties and trials of life.

Mine wouldn't be as awesome as you guys. It would be called Kidulting. I always felt like a big kid in an adult body especially since I tend to like childish things a lot. So I would be a book about my life as an adult who strongly wants to be a kid again lol

Latest Review: "That Place of Knowledge" by Philip Alan Shalka

Post by Ljessup » 04 Sep 2017, 16:45

If there were a book about me it would have to be about the difference of thought processes and being a loner. I have never met anyone that has the same analytical tactics that I have. My opinions are rarely, if ever, similar to those around me. The people I have built a life with do not see things the way I see them either, but we debate over things much of the time because of my fascination with how people arrive to their conclusions and the journey they go down with their thoughts. The title might be something cheesy like "Download," or "Classify." This was a fantastic topic to discuss, thank you for putting it up!

If I were to choose a title for my own book, it would probably be something like, Finding Consistency in the Inconsistent. It would probably discuss my current struggle with ADD and the procrastination, lack of focus, poor sleep habits, etc. that come with the disorder. Ideally, it would outline my "road to recovery" so to speak, even though there's no actual recovery - it's more of a coping. I say ideally because, currently, I'm in a daily battle with my lack of motivation to conquer my lack of motivation. ? I guess it would be self-help. Great topic, by the way!

Writing a book has always been something I've wanted to do … so, hopefully you really will get to read it someday! ?

Interesting question! If a book was written on my life, I think its title would be 'staying sane'. Perhaps, I could better tell about the title if I knew the ending of my life.

I'd probably title my story 'The Child that Wanted to Be'. I think there's just a lot of things I wanted to be as a child and I still want to be many of them. I've still got a long way to go. And then again, I just want to be. I don't want society deciding for me; I want to decide for myself. Hopefully, I'll get to achieve what I want and still just be.

Latest Review: "Health Tips, Myths, and Tricks" by Morton E. Tavel

Post by KlareAllison » 06 Sep 2017, 01:29

I think a title like 'Woman in the Combat Zone" will be apt for the challenges I have faced in life. From my parents' divorce at a time I was too young to know the meaning of the word to my father's continued hostile attitude, I think the title will be appropriate. My ordeal in the home with a stepmother who negatively influenced my father against my siblings and I, no doubt, set the stage for other seeming endless battles of life I had to fight.
"Sometimes I find myself sitting in one spot for hours, staring at nothing, feeling nothing, and most disturbingly, caring about nothing".
