that's it really, I'm wondering how other people go about it.

Do you go for something short and snappy?
Something that descriptive?
Something mysterious?
Some particular words from the story?

I am aware that publishers change titles if they want to so its no big deal really but I'm finding titles harder than writing the stories to be honest.

There are some useful guidelines online that take you through a process of brainstorming, eg this one by Rachelle Gardner.

Don't worry too much. It will more than likely come to you as you write in my experience. Pick a working title if you can think of one and take it from there perhaps...

Thanks for the advice guys, I've come up with something for this one and should any publisher wish to actually publish it I'm sure they'll make sure it has a title they're happy with smile
