Michi Girl – Titlegate

Today we end our humorous week with Michi Girl and the rejected titles for her brand new book (eventually called What on Earth are you Wearing?). Thank you Michi for a splendid week on the Guest Blog! Perhaps we’ll see you again with book 3’s rejections?… – Jenny x

Ok. So I imagine you are getting the picture on the old rejection stories. Has it ever happened to you that you get so over thinking about something that you start to get ridiculous? I get that way when I am trying to organise a dinner party. I think about the menu so much that I get to the point of giving my friends spag bol and a cleanskin red. I get so cerebrally fancy for so long that in my head I have already cooked the meal, had the fun, reaped the adulation and done the dishes, thanks very much. So by the time they get there I have moved on to some other obsession.

This is what happened in the adventure we shall call ‘Titlegate’. I got ridiculous. And lazy. And had already started to think about what I would write about next and how I would be in Paris soon. This is the result of such idiocy.

No wonder they rejected it.

Rejected title # 5: Michi’s number 2.

Reason for rejection: ‘Are you kidding? Don’t you think it’s a bit, well, puerile?’
