Once again, I need a title for my NaNoWriMo novel. I’m completely stumped, so I’m calling on my online friends to help me out.
The story, essentially, is this:
In the late 1800’s, a train on its way from Chicago to San Augustin, California is swarmed by otherwordly monsters. With the crew dead and the train careening faster and faster toward a monstrous and derailed doom, it’s up to a small group of determined individuals to save the train and all its passengers before it derails, releasing the monsters onto an unsuspecting and unprepared world.
I already have the main characters in mind. Some of them will be familiar names, ancestors of characters I have already written about. I’m planning adventure, intrigue, romance, and a host of Lovecraftian beasties ready to suck out souls and feast on the unfortunate living. It’s going to have more cliches than a George Lucas film, but I’m okay with that.
Anyway, I’m stumped for titles, both for the novel itself and the chapters within it, so I’m asking my online friends to help me out. Just to make it more exciting, if you give me a title I will happily kill you off in the manner of your choosing in the chapter titled with your suggestion. You can be a crew member, a passenger, a hapless bystander, whatever. Or you can have no preference and I’ll use my imagination. Don’t feel like you have to be confined to being eaten by a spawn of Cthulhu or slain by the wizard or something like that.
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
