Join us for 180 days of guidance, help, advice, suggestions, and lots of support and camaraderie. Learn how to plot and follow a simple outline without stifling your creativity, beef up your Hero, or develop your kick-ass Heroine.

I've decided to use Jackson's as yet untitled story for this one. And of course, the first e-mail on AABi180 went out yesterday, and one of the first things they want us to do is decide on a title or working title for our story. Fine. I filled in my line on the database with "Jackson's Story (working title)" and I gotta tell ya, it pales when compared to the awesome titles everybody else has filled in.
I'm a title idiot!
So now I'm trying to find a title. I want it two words, to continue in the IRRESISTIBLE HARMONY tradition, which of course, is the book Jackson first appeared in. I want to use the word rhythm in the title because Jackson's a drummer. But I'm stuck on the other word.
Looks like I'll be haunting the online thesaurus for a while.
