unfuck your anger

Unf*ck Your Anger Book by Dr. Faith G. Harper

by Alessandro Perta

When I saw this book on Kickstarter, I had to find headlines for it!

Not because I get angry, BUT BECAUSE SOMETIMES PEOPLE ON THE ROAD DRIVE ME COMPLETELY CRAZY!!!

Ahem…

unfuck your anger cover lg

Actually, I’ll try to find subheadlines.

I feel the title of the book is very strong (I love it). And it makes for a perfect headline if it was a blog post, too. No messin’ with what’s workin’.

Soo… KEEP CALM AND WRITE HEADLINES!

How It Felt

I think it’s a win overall.

Not only it was fast (like VERY fast… weird), but I think I have quite a few great propositions here.

I think digging my favorite headlines could yield even better ones.

But I really, really like #42: “The mood that makes you keep your cool: ANGER!

(It has a bit of an Insanity Wolf vibe to it.)

What I Learned

  • I haven’t written headlines for the past few days, and I think it helped with my speed today…
  • or maybe that’s because of the tone of voice of the author. I love the way she writes about this serious topic in a very informal, slang, and sometimes vulgar way.
  • Tone of voice can make or break a headline (and the interest in a topic, too)
  • Writing subheadlines for books is VERY fun!
