What do you do when lethargy strikes? Learn something new that you can loosely claim helps your writing, of course! I created a Romantic Fantasy Story Title Generator.
Thanks to a handy name generator script, I have now created my own random title words suitable for fantasy stories with a dollop of romance, and voila, a generator is born.
Click the link below to go to the Romantic Fantasy Title Generator. It will create a simple title. I’ll add to the random word lists as time goes on.
There are definite trends in fantasy story titles as identified by Orbit Books’ blog post from 2009. I love their book title and font frequency chart (right):
You’d think there would be plenty of data out there on novel titles. There’s certainly plenty in The Bestseller Code (more on that in my upcoming review of that excellent book). But online, I only found a couple of sources.
Anyway, I may be conducting my own bookshop-based title research in the near future to see what’s catchy right now. Then I’ll have more words for my generator!
A glance at The Guardian’s list of 2017’s best SFF books suggests a rather different selection for current titles.
Barnes and Noble have their own best SFF list for 2017.
Meanwhile, here’s a 2011 title analysis from Tor books. They go into a lot of detail about favourite occupations and antagonists too, you can check it out here. Here’s their chart:
I had fun doing this so I’m definitely up for creating some more generators. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this one.
