Hi everyone,

At the moment I have started writing my autobiography. I hope to have it published in the future. I have been thinking what I'm going to call the book but haven't had any luck.

The book is mainly about asperger's and my experiences. Does anyone have suggestions for a book title?

Thanks

The title is usually the last thing I write. I write the essay or article or book and then when I'm finished, there will be some theme or phrase that stands out to me from what I have written and that's where the title comes from.

The life of a wall flower, perhaps.

Here's a great quote from this forum that I think would work as a title. I don't know who originally wrote it on here, but I wish I could thank them. I've been mentioning this quote to my friends, who find it hilarious--it's both innocuous and blatant at the same time.

Don't Make Eye Contact While Eating a Banana

And sub-title it something like "Life lessons I've learned".
(If you don't use it, I will.)

Well, why not tell us a bit about yourself? What's the thing that makes you an interesting person to read about?

A lot of times, when someone is coming up with a title for their book, it gets a name that is apart of some poetic device that is used in the work. Like metaphor and Catcher in the Rye.
