View Full Version : Titles can jazz your books and articles

As a chronic 'editing' headline observer, I recently saw an article titled: "Woodpecker Drumming
Announces Spring's Return
Immediately I rewrote it in my head - as follows:
"Woodpecker's Rat-a-tat-tat
Signals Spring's Return."
...a simple change? Yes. Still, I do believe it's better.
No matter what you might be writing - your book, article or news items draw more readers when titles are jazzier.
