If you were to write the story of your life, what do you think would be the most appropriate or fitting tittle? I welcome you all to convey the key details of your life that consequently lead you to the name or tittle.

As a writer I find this question very interesting, my publisher wanted to call my story 'The Wrong Way'.........I had to say NO, I might feel wrong, or might feel like I am living on the wrong planet, but there IS nothing wrong about my life.

My autobiography is called. A Painful Gift - The Journey of a Soul With Autism, because my life has been filled with grief, tragedy, anxiety but most of all gratitude for my ability to still see the beauty in myself and so much of the world around me.

Thank you

I don't want to say because I might still write it and then it would be sad if my title were taken.

to the OP: i like that much better than the wrong way.

i'd call mine "why, bird?" it's a nonsensical title for a fey, fleeting person who can't make sense of her own life.

"Bound in leather"? Sounds dirty :lol:

If I ever write one, I have many name ideas, and like Sparrowrose, I'm paranoid about someone stealing them.

Dirty, really? It depends on your mind, surely?

But I might go for PVC...: That's wipe clean. or shall I have something like 'born free and stainless'?

True, but to me pretty much anything sounds like innuendo :lol:

The first thing that came to mind for the title of my autobiography, is actually a term from the Halo games:

"The Silent Cartographer."

But I can't use that since obviously it's already taken. The only other thing I can come up with right off the top of my head is "Abide the Day Quietly."

"Don't Crush that Dwarf; Hand Me Those Pliers"

....oh, wait. That one's been taken already.

Either "A Brief Introduction to the Oddities of the Mind" or simply "Odd".
