I was cleaning today and found an old list of possible titles I jotted down for what became The Start of the Majestic World. Here they are:
- Thuban AM
- Siege Mentality
- Civilization Under Threat
- Classicism and Decadence
- Equally Jests
- Concerning the Cancellation of Thuban AM
- Upon What Meat?
Re-reading this, it’s clear to me that I made the right decision. Note that the last title on the list is from the same scene in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar that includes the phrase “the start of the majestic world”, which gives you some insight into how titles get selected.
What do you think? Do you agree with my pick?
