Titles

Right now I'm working on coming up with the title for my third novel. The working title for the project has been The Waking Man, but I've discovered that title was used for a short story published in 1992, and I don't really want anyone's sloppy title seconds.

So, please, send us here at Blogagaard your title ideas. I'd tell you what the book is about, but that'd just skew your title ideas and I want your coming at this thing fresh, baby.

Hmm, kinda hard to come up with a title without knowing something about the book, but I like a challenge. Here are few ideas based on the theme of waking/sleeping:

Thanks Ian!

Anything others come up with can't be any worse than FREIGHT, which is what I came up with when I was drunk a couple of nights ago and woke up to wondering, what the hell was I thinking? FREIGHT?
