The essay titles we have discussed so far have largely been those you might use for an academic essay, or the type that involves research of some sort. However, it is very likely that you might be asked to write a title about a descriptive essay, an imaginative piece, or a personal piece. In fact, it is probably true to say that these areas of writing are more likely to involve you in the process of evolving a title, since they are, in a sense, more creative. If you are asked to create a title of this sort, again, try to write a list of your ideas about the topic because these might generate a title for you. This time, however, your focus needs to be very much on capturing the attention of your reader, just as a headline does in a newspaper, to make them want to read on. Examples of titles that might be applicable to each of the above are:
In his 2011 book That Is All , John Hodgman titles a chapter about taking a cruise "A Totally Fun Thing I Would Do Again as Soon as Possible." The name of the 2012 Simpsons episode " A Totally Fun Thing That Bart Will Never Do Again " also references the title essay. Tina Fey's 2011 memoir Bossypants also includes a chapter on her own cruise experience, entitled My Honeymoon: Or, A Supposedly Fun Thing That I’ll Never Do Again Either , in which she jokingly suggests that those who've heard of Wallace's book should consider themselves members of the "cultural elite", who hate their country and flag.
