WARNING- Contents are Fun!

Not every book has chapter titles, but I never debated titling mine. It was…fun! Each chapter is, in essence, a story. Writing 28 stories which weave together into the larger story, “The Red String,” was a wonderful adventure for me and, I hope, for the reader. “The Red String,” after all, is not only about, well- red string. There are many themes, characters, and conflicts to resolve. Sometimes titling a chapter gave me focus and parameters in which to confine the theme or development at hand.

I was more familiar with writing song lyrics or poems before writing “The Red String.” In a song, there are verses, a chorus, and possibly a bridge to format.  Each contributes to the whole, but serves a separate purpose. It may be the songwriter in me that led to my being so enamored with titles. I also enjoy the way it gives the reader an enticement to continue. I tried to keep them vague, yet appropriate.

Whatever the reason, I hope my readers will appreciate the time and effort of adding this extra touch. It was…fun!
