writing to the title

i don't really write stories with the title first. usually, i don't come up with any title until halfway through the story. then i change it six times.

but in a discussion about titles last night, i wondered what title would get me to instantly buy anything inside the book just because of the title.

i took all of my favorite words and piled them into one title.

i want to write the story just because i adore the title.

"Coffee with the Jesus Christ Robot in the Berlin Zeppelin"

hm... now if only i can come up with a story...
it would be a best-seller in my living room.
