The right name

Every story has a title. It is its identity. It can be indicative of what the story is about or what the morale to be learned will be. It can also misdirect, letting the audience to believe that the story will go in a particular direction only to turn them on their ears and force a concept through.

I spend a considerable amount of time, giving titles to my stories. Like naming a baby, you feel you have to get it right. Not really realising that that child can grow up in future and be known by a pseudonym, a symbol or a nick name. No, you don't think that. You have to get right, get it perfect...

Some children make it quite easy for some parents who can "listen." They simply tell them the names they have chosen by themselves. For real?! You should know, now, Cathy.

Never mind that later in life they start concocting other fancy names for themselves!!!
