(That's the title, not just me shouting hallelujah.) Glory is my narrator's name. The book just cried out to be titled GLORY BE. I'm so happy!
As much as I dread Titles, I love names. I love place names, character names, street names. I don't even mind Chapter Names.
Here's a name that surfaced in my newspaper and I totally love it. Goliath. I can just picture a boy in a book named Goliath. Our local Goliath is called Go by his friends. Love that also.
A recent church bulletin I tucked away for safe-keeping celebrated the lives of those who'd died in 2010 and those who were born that year. The name comparison says a lot.
Edna Mae, Shirley, Murray, Norma Betty, Doris, Hazel, Glen, Homer.
Can you tell which are the babies' names?
Come to think of it, maybe the old names are new again. There's also a Lola Marie on that list of babies born in 2010.
Names, names, names. Inspirational. Naming a character so makes me want to write about him.
Picking titles? Not so much. It's good to have help in that department.
Glory Be! I do love it.
