Gibbs/Ducky: Arms

30 Days of Fandom Meme Day 17

17 – Titles – Are they the bane of your existence, or the easiest part of the fic? Also, if you do chaptered fic, do you give each chapter a title, or not?

The answer to the first part of the question is 'yes' and 'yes'. It all depends on the story. Given the title of the story was part of my template and also the file name I gave the story when I saved it, I had to come up with the title pretty much before I started to write. Thus, for the most part the title did come very easily. There was the odd occasion when I really struggled to think of a suitable title and had to resort to coming up with a 'holding name' for the file when saving, but those occasions were few and far between.

As for chaptered fic. I only wrote a few chaptered stories and I used Chapter One, Chapter Two, etc. If I needed anything else, for example the date of that chapter, I just added it after the relevant chapter number.
