Clarify you know what you're talking about and don't leave out important details.

    A writer should always know that sometimes the more elaborate the title, the more interesting it becomes.


My own example is my story "Satin and Leather", a story about two twins who are opposite of one another. So, instead of "Black and White" or "Twins" or even "Fire and Ice" I chose "Satin and Leather"

Sometimes symbolism works as well. Satin gives you the image of a silky, pretty material used by women. Leather may give you the impression think of motorcycles, bikers, and more masculine things.


Keep in mind that not everybody thinks some things are the same as you.

Ex: You might think that an apple are a sign of teaching and education.
But I think of sin, Eve and Adam, and so forth.

Satin and Leather sounds like it would be a romance or erotic story. Know your audience.

satin and leather immediately conquered images of some s&m scene. I don't mean this as a value judgement, but simply letting you know how it might sound to the audience who sees the title.
