    Default the title of my autobiography

    I made myself slow down as I went back through the story, leaving out Archer’s part in it, of course. I told Dad that I’d remembered seeing something weird at Hecate, so I’d gone back to check it out, the described the pit, the rock in the middle, even the ghouls.

    By the time I was finished, Dad looked older and sadder than I’d ever seen him. “None of this makes any sense.”

    “I’m beginning to think I should make that the title of my autobiography.”

    “Lara and Anastasia are two of my most trusted allies,” Dad said, rubbing his hand over his jaw. “Why on earth would they be behind all this?”



    I don't get the metaphor.

    Default Re: the title of my autobiography

    I don`t know exactly. Some phrases are so rare...

    I believe it means that he or she will call it " a summary of my whole life story"

    Default Re: the title of my autobiography

    When people write their autobiography, they often choose a clever name that reflects there experiences in life.

    Bill Clinton chose a rather bland My Life.
    Kristin Chenoweth (an actress who appeared on Broadway in the musical Wicked) chose A Little Bit Wicked
    Ghandi chose The Story of My Experiments With Truth, while the Dalai Lama's is called Freedom in Exile.

    The main character in your story would entitle theirs None of This Makes Any Sense, demonstrating the continuing confusing at the events recently experience.

    (The more you post, the more I think I will enjoy reading this story. The author is very clever.)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
