I have a pretty decent new poem, but oh! The task of giving it a title! Jay-R (not to be confused with Jay-V) extracted a title from the poem itself, but I feel like I need to come up with something new, something better than "The Enlightenment," which is what it's currently called.
So spill it. How do you come up with your titles? Any of the really good titlers out there care to give us some advice? Am I the only poet who stinks at titling? Yes? Oh dear.
On an unrelated note, I received my first royalty check for Prairie Fever yesterday, and it was way, way more than I'd expected. Wow!
Many thanks to everyone who bought the book, and to all of the teachers who adopted it. I am so very grateful! (FYI--I am always happy to correspond with students who are using the book in a class, and to do online/email interviews, so if you are using the book, just drop me a line).
In honor of the whole royalty thing, here's a picture that Jeannine took of me being royal. Or being a royal diva.
