The art of writing headlines.

I'm constantly thinking about headlines and how I can make them short, snappy and accurate.

I've had some experience doing it -- I was the copy chief during my college days and my job right now involves posting stories directly to the Web site and writing the headlines.

I've found that headline-writing doesn't get any easier and really is an art form. I'm always in awe of copy editors and editors who can come up with amazing headlines.

I've yet to write a headline that I'd proudly show off to my grandkids.
