By day, I'm a user experience designer; by evenings/weekends, I write novels from my home in Scappoose, Ore. My newest is Awake in the World, published February 2019 by Roaring Brook Press; my previous novel, Eleanor, was published by Crown in 2016 and has since been translated into German, Portuguese, and Turkish. I’m currently working on a new project.

Don't be fooled by butts

Apparently, it's quite hard to come up with catchy clickbait blog post ideas. What's a clickbait writer to do when they've run out of steam? 

I stumbled across Title Generator recently, which promises to give you seven hundred headlines for any topic. All you have to do is give the Title Generator a keyword, and it'll get to work. 

I gave it 'butts'.

Title Generator gave me:
