    If you wrote a book about your life, what would the title be?

    I am not sure what title I would choose for my life story.  All I can think of for a title would be "Middle of the Middle".  I am the middle child of seven and the middle of three sisters -- oh! I also am the middle of two older brothers and two younger brothers.  According to birth order theories, I would be a mediator -- so, maybe my title would be "The Mediator".  hmmmm ....

    A Middle To No End
    Would be a title, if it hasn't been taken.

      Hi locaj. Would that be your title or a suggestion for mine?  It is interesting to find out what people would use as a title for their life story.

      A suggested for your title.

    Confessions of a Pseudo-Stud : a humorous read from beginning to end

      That is so funny, Alastar!  I never think of you as insincere, so pseudo does not seem to fit you.  Silly ol' Alastar.

    What a good question. I have no idea, but maybe because I haven't thought about it. Perhaps "Stuck in the Middle" being a middle child like yourself, but that's not really creative.  Same here, 7 kids.

    I have taught on birth order so that would be a good thing to consider I guess.  Mediator fits.

    Like you, I think I'll have to put this on the back burner and let it simmer.  I'd like to see what others might say.  Thanks for asking Phyllis.  Blessing

      That is so cool, we both are the middle of seven. Yes, my auto-biography is on the back burner also. Thank you, favored, for participating.

      That should be interesting, Kevin.

      If you ever do write your own book Phyllis simply start at the beginning, and end at the end.

      What a marvelous idea, Kevin. You are so creative.

    Sounds like a good one Phyllis; nothing comes to me, but if it does I will be back! (7 kids in my family too!)

    If I write a book about my life, the title would be "The Eldest daughter" or "Broken Dreams". As I am the eldest in the family I would be called the eldest daughter. I had some dreams that have not come to fruition due to family tragedy and would like to call it broken dreams.

    1. Phyllis Doyle profile image95

      I like both titles.

    This question make one think Phyllis. Just off the top of my head "The Wanderer" . It was a song by Del Shannon that I was branded with at school and I have moved around a lot in my life.

      I love that song. I wish Dell Shannon had more hits.

      I like that title, Jodah. And I love Del Shannon's song "The Wanderer".

    I completely love this question!! So glad I stumbled on it.

    My book would probably be called..."I don't live for you" or something far less serious would be "Living my life the hardway smile"

    1. Phyllis Doyle profile image95
      Phyllis Doyleposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      Both titles are very interesting, Novel.

    “Screwed, Blued, and Tatooed” 
    That comes from an old saying that was popular when I was a teenager. That was our favorite expression when somebody got in trouble or when something didn’t work out.  It seems like everything I’ve carefully planned in my life has gone wrong. I even had a psychic to tell me to quit thinking and planning and just let things happen. I had a former employer tell me that I could “get into more trouble sitting still than the ordinary person can running 90 miles per hour”! I have people who know me telling me that I’ve had such an interesting life that I should write a book about it, but I never will because I don’t want anyone asking how could I be so stupid!

      MizB, that saying was popular when I was a teenager. I have not heard that in years.

    lisavanvorstposted 4 years ago

    I would title it "How I survived the ups and downs of Life" After all life throws so many obstacles in our way; this title sounds fitting. Or another good title would be "How I survived life and made the most of it"!

    1. Phyllis Doyle profile image95
      Phyllis Doyleposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      How about "Surviving Squidoo Transition to HubPages"?  You are doing that well, Lisa.

  12. Penny G profile image70

    My title would be  :   All This and She keeps on ticking!

    Hi Phyllis,
    What a great question!
    Hmmm...I think I would have to borrow the title from a Paul Simon Album "Still Crazy After All These Years"  :-)

    1. Phyllis Doyle profile image95
      Phyllis Doyleposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      LOL - I think we all are a bit crazy !  I like this title, Kaili.

    Your title should be simply 'Middling', 'Always In the Middle' or 'The Middling Mediator' - 'Middle of the Middle' sounds good as well.

    I've been working on my life story for some time now and it's title is 'Dead Memories, Shattered Lives' my synopsis is on hubpages.  There is also another synopsis of a crime novel I'm working on called 'Watching & Waiting' again based on real life experiences.

    Autobiographies take so long to wite... good luck!

    1. Phyllis Doyle profile image95
      Phyllis Doyleposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      I like the title of your autobiography, Leni. I will go read the synopsis.

      "Middling Mediator" is a good title. Thanks.

    Ha Ha...the Self Employed Housewife.  I never was going to write anything about my own life, but the idea started due to the many hobbies I've done over the years. They became my salvation. I've written my story in a fictional style and changed the names. Today I need to decide when to end it. When to make a closure with the past so long ago.

    1. Phyllis Doyle profile image95
      Phyllis Doyleposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      How interesting, Nadine. It is hard to write about one's own life, for me anyway. I have tried several times and do not know where to begin or end the book.  Thanks for participating.
