Outlining my novel

I thought outlining "Fears of Winter" would be boring and I would get bored right away. At first, yes, it was boring, but now I'm getting to the good parts of my novel it's getting really interesting. It's even starting to interfere with my sleep. I just hope that when November actually comes along my outline won't keep me from having fun. I don't think it will.

Finished "The Lie of Perfection"

It needs tons of editing, but I'm glad to have it finished. Now I can concentrate on planning my NaNo novel. I've been wanting to concentrate fully on it for awhile. I haven't gotten as much planning as I would like done because of LoP, but I didn't want to stop writing LoP because I was worried I would never finish it.

The Search for the Perfect Title

I've been trying to come up with a title for my 2010 NaNo novel, but none of them seem to be right. My 2009 was one called "A Stolen Winter" and part of me wants to have Winter in all three of the titles of the first three books (but maybe not the fourth and definitely not the prequel), but everything I come up with isn't that good. I can come up with titles I like that don't have Winter in them so I'm thinking of abandoning my little theme.

Here are some titles I'm thinking of:
Lies of Winter's Life
Winter's Lies
Lies They Told
Winter's Escape
Sky is Over
The Sky is Falling
Darkest Before the Dawn
Conquering Fear
Winter's Fears
Winter Lies
Winter's Darkest Fears

Which one is the least bad? And do you think the having the word "Winter" in the title is too cheesy. Three of the main characters have the last name Winter.

EDIT: Came up with the title. It's going to be "Fears of Winter"
