The title is the first thing that I always write when starting to write a new post. It's the root of every post, defining the topic I'm about to write. After I'm done it not always necessarily suitable title anymore. I might get carried away along the way and end up writing about something completely different.

It's easy to just pick a topic, write it down and start producing text about it. But sometimes it might be hard to come up with that. It can hold me back as I can't get started with the writing, even if I have a perfect idea in my head, but I can't come up with a proper title for it.

Maybe I should for a chance try it the other way around. Just start writing something and see where it leads. And only after I have finished, look back and decide what did I just wrote about. The result might be something completely different. Without fixating my mind in trying to match a certain topic what could I come up with. Or at least seeing the ready text would allow me to put a proper and meaningful title for it. I can't remember doing that ever before. Maybe it's time to try something new again.

    @Arcticloon And I always write my titles last. Maybe I should switch it up at some point too.
