7 QT: What’s Your Book Title for the Last Few Weeks?

I have a long-term goal of writing and illustrating a book. Or two.  Or whatever.

I’ve always thought I’d be best suited to write a children’s book, mostly so I could include my own illustrations, and not have to worry about the proper use of a semicolon.

Naive me read somewhere along the way that children’s books aren’t nearly as easy to publish as one might think, and basically forget about writing AND illustrating a whole book because publishers usually hire a separate illustrator.
So nine-ish years later, I’m also looking into memoir writing.  Not in-depth “looking into” by any means, but my understanding of what a memoir is has transformed from “self-portrait of the narcissist” to “everyone has an amazing story, and we can transform the world by sharing it.” A memoir can simply be about one event in someone’s life, or only a few years. That’s about as far as I’ve gotten into learning about memoirs, but I’m fascinated and want to know and read more.

I’m too excited to read Jen’s memoir (<affiliate link) when it comes out. Last night, as I laid in bed nursing and waiting for my 1.5 year old to settle to sleep, my hips groaned to lay flat and I wondered what the title of my book would be, if it had to reflect the last few weeks.  I thought it’d be nice to make a story out of a few, and add a little artistic liberties to the tale.

So, humor me, friends:  Which book would you read? AND:

What would the title(s) of your book(s) be, if it had to reflect the last few weeks of your life?
