I'm writing a short story about how someone's monster--depression--is overtaking them, continuing until the person finally decides to give up on life. In the end, they figure out that they are truly the monster, and they are the ones who are in control. The thing is, I have no idea what to call my story. Help???
It's pretty obvious that you don't read enough. You need to read novels. Lots of novels. Any novels. Notice that they all have perfect spelling, perfect punctuation, perfect composition. Notice where they use one space and where they use two. Notice that every speaker in a dialog gets a new paragraph, and every paragraph is preceded by a blank line. Notice any writing techniques or figures of speech. Look up anything you find that you didn't know. For example you run across a story about a space traveller named Artios; why is he named that? Or you read a story about a submarine named Proteus; why? Take notes so you know where you found what you know. It takes a lot of reading to be a writer.
biblehub.com/greek/739.htm -- Implication: "You don't have anything I need." The traveller is neither a peddler nor a beggar.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proteus -- The boat is in command of its situation.
Just a few random ideas:
Out of Control
Enough is Enough
Idk, just a few ideas that came to mind. Hope this helped! Your story sounds really awesome! I would definitely want to read it. =) Are you going to publish it anywhere?
