Yes. But, we’re almost finished.
Today, we’ll discuss the delicate matter of…

Length
Successful productions with long titles – “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” or “The Man Who Went Up A Hill and Came Down A Mountain” – are rare.
Very rare. Indeed.
This is especially true of screenplays and, to a lesser extent, stage plays.

Not for nothing do big-budget and big money-making films end up with titles like “Jaws,” “The Matrix,” or “Avatar.”
Books and stories are no different.
Advertising is all well and good. But word of mouth is better.
And, if the title of your masterpiece can’t be spoken aloud in less than twenty seconds, you might want to reconsider it.
Less is More.
Sorry folks; that one’s been used, already.

See you, for the final post in this series.

Peace.
