30 Days of Fanfic Meme - Day Seventeen

17 – Titles – Are they the bane of your existence, or the easiest part of the fic? Also, if you do chaptered fic, do you give each chapter a title, or not?

Ugh, do not even go there! I admit, sometimes the title just comes to me, but most of the time I hate trying to come up with them. In my work, I have to write headlines for articles, and trust me, it's not easy, especially when you're given a limited amount of space. So yes, they can be the bane of my existence.

I try to work the title into my story in some way, so to me the title is an important part of it. When it comes to the different fandoms, like Smallville and Supernatural, if at all possible, I try to do something which is faithful to the show's structure. Like Smallville does one word episode titles and Supernatural's titles are rock songs.

Chaptered stories - I tend not to give them a title other than 'Chapter ...'. It depends on the story. Like there is one epic I've been working on where each 'episode' is given a title and I have to admit I'm having fun with this one because I am translating the titles into Latin.
