Writers: Fun Title/Summary Game?

The rules are easy: you come up with five titles and five summaries. It could be titles and summaries that you're working on, or just something that you made up right on the spot. The titles could be even in other languages, but be sure to post the translation beside it!

The subject of the game is for the next answerer to invent summaries based on the titles of the previous answerer and invent titles based upon the summaries. Don't dare skip any! ;P Use your imagination for all of them! When you're finished, come up with your own titles and summaries for the next answerer so the game can continue.

Also note, if you are inspired and would like to use something that is written here, please contact the person(s) who created the summary/title or title/summary pair. Thanks!

I shall begin:

Titles:

1. Shards of Sea Glass

2. Two Much (typo intentional)

3. Much Ado About Everything

4. A Dream Deferred

5. Sitting, Waiting, Wishing

Summaries:

1. Percy spun around, once, twice, a third time. The world tilted, swirled, spun right in front of his eyes, but nothing changed. Nothing for the better.

2. So many people liked to compare romances to Shakespearean tales, a Romeo and Juliet mix. She preferred an entirely different set of associations.

3. He had set out in hopes of helping everyone, of figuring out just what was going on down there. By the time he'd come back he couldn't even remember his name.

4. Eyes flashed: light, dark, light, dark. It was supposed to be a partnership, a balance of givetakegivetake, but he was being forced to give instead of take.

5. "You smell like oranges and honeysuckle," he murmured, deeply inhaling the scent of the short, straw-colored hair.

    1) How long have you been writing? What's the first thing you remember writing? I've been writing for eleven years. The first thing I remember writing for fun was, was a very terribly piece of realistic fiction about a very annoying eleven year old girl. I wrote it when I was nine, and at the time, I thought it was pretty darn awesome. Honestly now, it's pretty embarrassing. 2) If you have one, what's your preferred genre? Do you read and write the same genre? I love writing different kinds of fantasy as well as crime/mysteries. I read the same genres, but reading I'm a little more versatile. 3) Is writing a hobby or a career? Both? Neither? Right now, it's a hobby. But I'm not opposed to attempting to make a career out of it in the future. 4) What books do you feel have had the most impact on you as a writer? Honestly, all of them. I feel every books I've read as some sort of impact on me as a writer, whether it's a good one or not. 5) Just how awesome is your latest project? :) It's going pretty good. Hopefully sometime I might consider it totally awesome though :P
