    Default "Book" title help? HR I swear.

    In my last semester of college I made the unfortunate choice of taking a class called "Exploring Creativity". In this class, the only grade is based on a creative project we come up with ourselves. Mine is a novel written NaNoWriMo style in 30 days. It's a horribly trashy thing about rich juniors at HITS Thermal. Think Gossip Girl meets Horsepower. Lots of teen drama plus 'A' circuit drama. It's pretty much terrible. But it still needs to be turned in. Which means it needs a title. And I'm drawing a blank. Help? Pretty please?

    Wow, talk about being creative, like over the top creative and talented with words too.

    I could hardly think of a couple of titles and none by far that good.

    Alright, once it is finalized I would be happy to send it to whomever would like to read it. No critiques though please - my ego is fragile and the book is pretty much terrible.

    Right now I'm torn between Unbridled Excess, Barn Brats, and The Circuit.

    I knew you guys would have great ideas.

    Keep the suggestions coming!!!

    The title is not intended for yours or anyone's approval, or selling a book in today's market, but to impress and please a teacher.
    Pick the title that you think will do that.

    You are welcome.
    Those lists were really impressive.
    Awesome talent there.

    I kind of like Unbridled Excess.
    The discrete pun seems just right to impress a creativity teacher.

    "Unbridled Excess" is my favorite too, I'm just not sure I would use it for a creativity class because the state of KY has pretty much exploited the whole Unbridled thing already in a highly visible tourist campaign. To sell books? Yeah I'd ride that train, but not to sell my own creativity...
