Okay, so titles are major important. I can't stress how important they are. When you write a story or a novel, it shouldn't have those obvious titles like "The Vampire Story" or like "A Funny Day At The Beach". You should title your story in a unique way that doesn't give any kind of hint as to what the story is about, unless you really, really want to do that. I'll admit that sometimes I throw together random titles, but they really do require deep thinking.

For example, when I was reading the novel called "Thank You For Smoking" by Christopher Buckley, that novel got me in a world of trouble by the people that I knew. My teachers took one glance at the title and they were like, "Why are you reading a book that promotes smoking?" and my parents were upset and yeah…it's awesome a book can draw that much attention, simply with the title. So do you understand how important the title is now? It's what makes your novel unique.

P. S. :The novel "Thank You For Smoking" really doesn't promote smoking. It's a really great novel that I highly recommend because it proves that with the right rhetoric you can manipulate language or people's line of thought.
