C Day

Crazy A-Z Theme: CREATING TITLES!
Come on and Clear your Cloudy Cranium! Cheer for my C titles...

CALL OF THE SPHINX - MG. Reluctant treasure hunters on a boring vacation feel the call of the Sphinx and have to save a friend who falls under its spell.

CRASH OF THE FAIRY - MG. Glee goes to Fairy Training School and has a hard time making friends.

CALAMITY AVENUE - Thriller/Noir. When money is the answer to everyone's problems, who from the cast of shady characters will step up and be a hero?


WVDs of the Day (lots of Cs):

cless - to pretend not to have money, slum it

catomato - juicy, red fruit that spits and hisses when you bite into it

copolose - get away from the police

chint - a cheap date

curlyg - a longer curl

catorb - a round toy for felines

croodies - an embarrassing entourage

Bonus - WV Name
Catriz, for a girl

*Titles & WVDs (word verification definitions) are made up by moi

Catherine Noble said...

Haha consider my cloudy cranium cleared! Loving your WVDs, I want a catorb to call my own!

Angela Brown said...

Your WVDs had me rolling.

For some reason, I immediately thought about Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs for a "C" tile as well.

Nicki Elson said...

A round toy for felines (yes, I'm shaking my head...and smiling).

You are building up a seriously great list of stories you're going to have to write one day.

My kids are croodies!

Copolose, lol I love that one.

Sean McLachlan said...

I often have trouble thinking up titles. They usually don't come to me until well into the writing. I'm halfway through writing my next Civil War novel and I still haven't thought of a title for that one!

Tara Tyler said...
