Well, I’m in a bit of a quandary, and I’d like your input. As I mentioned yesterday, I’m contemplating signing up for July’s Camp NaNoWriMo, and during the registration process, I have to list the title of the novel that I’ll be working on.
The next story I intend to write is a psychological thriller inspired by my daughter. She’s currently doing quite well for herself, but in her youth and younger adulthood, she’s been with some rather unsavory characters (to say the least).
The story is about a mom who hates her daughter’s horrible boyfriends and husbands so much that she murders them and convinces the daughter that they simply left. Of course, due to the nature of the genre, there will be a few bends in the road before the huge twist ending. 😉
That said, I’m torn between two titles:
I like either
“Judge, Jury, Executioner.”
The first title has, as you can imagine, been used already — several times actually — but not in anything like this. The second title has been used for TV episodes only. But I don’t really care about that. I just want what sounds the best and is most fitting for my story.
Which title do you prefer and why?
