Hi and welcome!
OK, the first step in creating what will be a very simple inspirational journal is to decide what to call it.
In this case, we’ve decided to go with “365 Days of Inspiration” – which also helps with the format of the book, being a journal for one year.
While this step seems simple enough (and in this case I’m cheating ~ a client has asked me to create a book with this name that they can give away as a free ebook), creating a dynamic, catchy title that people will want to buy is often a daunting, frustrating experience.
Here’s a simple book-title formula I love presented by Jeff Goins in his website goinswriter.com:
Number or Trigger word + Adjective + Keyword + Promise
Example: Take the subject “bathing elephants.” You could write an article entitled, “How to Bath an Elephant” or “Why I Love Bathing Elephants.”
Or you could apply this formula and make it: “18 Unbelievable Ways You Can Bathe an Elephant Indoors”
Another (more serious) example: Take a bold promise like “selling your house in a day.”
Apply the formula and you get: “How You Can Effortlessly Sell Your Home in Less than 24 Hours”.
Decide on a title – or at least a working title – for YOUR book!
