Titles – Which Captures Your Attention?

Yep, I’m at it again. This time, nothing to read. No prep. One vote—indicate which, if any, of these titles captures your attention.

Then for those of you who find you have time galore ( 🙄 ), tell me what you think makes a title eye-catching.

Thanks for your input.

  1. Dunamis makes me stop and pay attention. My second is Hunted, but it is probably overdone. IMO


  2. I voted for Trapped but didn’t care for any of them because they reveal what would appear to be a “portion” of the plot but not the overall story. That probably doesn’t make sense, but that’s the best I can do. If there had been a “None of the above”, that would’ve gotten my vote.

    I do like one word titles, but they have to hold intrigue–like a guide into the story not just one facet or the whole plot revelation. A good title often has multiple meanings.


  3. I didn’t care for any of them. They aren’t catchy, nor do they make me curious about the story behind them.


  4. Helpful comments. Thanks. Keep them coming!

    Jason, I don’t understand what you mean by “overdone.” Can you explain a little? Are you thinking it’s a metaphor and one that is melodramatic? Just trying to understand this whole titling thing.




  5. Oh, and I thought the “None of these” was a good option, so I added it. (Duh! Why didn’t I think of that! 😕 )

  7. Just that “Hunted” has probably been done before.
