Titles

So I've been writing a book (or rather, not writing it) for a while, and I'm going through dozens of titles, not to mention throwing away entire characters and plot arcs with annoying regularity. it's been titled San Marco, then Europa. Didn't care for those; yes, it's about a place, but.... So I added the definite article, and the title became The Serene Republic, then The Black Hand, then The Benandanti. For some reason, changing titles makes me feel I need to reinvent the book. The real problem is that I'm struggling with the villain and the third act, which has not worked yet. Until I figure out the third act, I'm stuck, and I might as well write the Monkey Goes to Heaven book, which is much more straightforward and fun.

I know rationally that I should just stop worrying about the title and get on with writing more chapters. I've got about six, and they don't all hang together, and I need about 30 or 40.

Can't wait for the writer's retreat. Time to get away and focus and maybe blow up some of the mental roadblocks. Or at least hang out with cool Kansas people.
