Sooooo, there's this script that I'm working on for my career and as I'm writing it, I am trying to come up with some title ideas. But I really suck at making titles so I thought some of you might be to help!

The Plot is about a mid-twenties college dropout that begins to confuse her dreams with reality. It all starts from an accident that leaves her with unpredicted concussions throughout the story. The story is meant to be dark and twisted, blending styles from The Black Swan, Fight Club, and Final Fantasy VIII; Along with bits of mythology such as the concept of the Kitsune ( Ahri).

Now, when thinking of a title, I had an idea of using a reference to a popular childhood song, "Row Row Your Boat" (or whatever it's called). I wanted to give an innocent name with a dark, twisted message, mainly focused on implying the ending line, "life is but a dream." But I've come up with nothing that sounds good or catchy. "Gently Down","Stream", "Dream Row" GARBAGE!!!

Ugh....I think I just need a new perspective. I know I'd come up with on eventually, but I'd like to sort of rush the process....any ideas?

If you felt I contributed and stuff, can I have a (+1 Rep =3)?

My first thought was the line "is this real life, or is it just fantasy" from Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. so I was thinking something like "Dream Rhapsody". Yeah , it has nothing to do with your "row, row, row your boat" idea, but it's the best I got.

Thanks to DuskToGlory for the sigs. LOL :)

Eh...One thing I forgot to mention is that I'd like to avoid using the word "dream" in the title. I feel that it's too direct.

Personally I don't see anything wrong about being direct, however, it is your story and if you want to be abstract with the title go ahead, I just won't be of much help in that regard.

I think having it as just "Row, row your boat" is a pretty good idea. Because it's something everyone has heard of and it'll interest them, especially if the story is a bit dark.

Maybe "Ashes to Ashes we all fall down" ish kind of theme because having that sort of dark-ish background with a little childhood song title will catch the attention of the implied audience.

I still like the "Row, row your boat" idea...

While playing Zelda and just finsihing Ganandorf I would say
"Day Dreams"
"Swayed by a dream"
"The dream-road called life"
"Sleepy"
"What ever is real"

That is all I got for now.
