Sometimes we get so connected to a title that it's hard to modify it.

true, but this one really fits in my opinion. Considering the sub title of "if he will only open his heart" or maybe something a little shorter

Ummm "The Heap - With an Open Heart"  I don't know about that.  trying to think more along the result of the conflict, while open heart fits that, it just don't ring for me. 

 

Was thinking more along the lines of  "The Heap - Family Restoration" since in the end that's what really happens. But that don't ring so well either. Your'e right though, may have to come up with a totally new title.

Apparently it's a good idea to come up with the title last, and just assign a working title for while you're writing. 

 

Cry, the Beloved Country was given its name after it was written. Apparently, Alan Paton asked a couple friends to write down something that, for them, summarized the story, and they both wrote that phrase. (Disclaimer: I'm quoting this from memory, so I do stand to be corrected). 

 

My advice: Keep "The Heap" as a working title. But be prepared to change it. Inspiration may come at the most random of times, or from the most random of places.

Okay, after giving this some thought and discussing it with my wife. We are thinking; 

 

The Old Heap

 

Or

 

The Family Heap

 

Or leave it as it is and take our chances.

"The Heap of Restoration?" "The Restoration Heap?" "The Restoring Heap?" "

Not sure what I'm going to call it right now. I still have time and I need time to think about it.

Soon as I decide that, I can seriously look at book covers. 

 

No one ever told me it would be this hard to make what seems to be a simple decision. 😟
