Lessons of love?  (the first few years of my life)

I was much too young (the rape and other perverts in my life)

Moments of hope  (the times spent with my grandparents)

Wild child (my teenage years of self destruction)

Looking for love (my relationships in high school and college)

Search for security (my first marriage)

Altar call (the years in the church after my marriage)

Disillusionment (finding the truth about the church)

Opportunity (the move to Delaware)

American dream ( my second marriage)

Crash and burn (my breakdown and how I destroyed the life I had)

Fear (life with jackass)

No where to go (my homelessness)

Let’s try this again (starting over once again)

Illumination (the years in therapy and the things I discovered)

Never alone (learning to live with my MI's)
---------------------------------


This is the list so far.

This sounds like it's going to be a long and interesting book! I'm looking forward to reading it.

Just one thing I noticed. "Alter" means "other" while "altar" is what's in a church. Although it might be an interesting play on words if you're going to talk about your alternate personalities.

Gotta love the English language and all the words that sound the same but are spelled differently! Well, I do, but I can imagine it drives a lot of people batty  :crazy:

Your right, I used the wrong word.

I have decided to combine a few of the chapters.  I took out disillusionment and Let's try this again.

So will "Disillusionment" go with "Altar Call" and "Let's Try this again" with "Illumination"?

This too shall pass.

Yeah, "disillusionment" will go in with "altar call."  "Let's try this again" will go with "No where to go" though.  I am also going to combine "Looking for love" into "searching for security."

I am also combing "illumination" into "never alone"

Glad to see you posting "little me"

Moxie, That is a really great start!! I was thinking you should combine some of those, as they might not be long enough to make a whole chapter and then saw that you did!!   :good:

I did a little more refining and combining.  I can't decide really whether I think I can get enough material to fill each chapter of the first list.  So I combined a bit more and came up with list #2. I am just going to take in both and decide there which one I think would be more realistic.



Title list #1
-----------

Lessons of love?

Much too young
 
Moments of hope

Wild child

Searching

Altar call

Opportunity

American dream

Crash and burn

Fear

No where to go

Family values

Never alone
===================

Title list #2

-------------


Lessons of youth

Searching

Altar call

American dream

Crash and burn

No where to go

Family values

Never alone
================

Personally, I like number one better...but you have to be realistic. Besides, it's what goes in the chapters anyway.
