Why “Little Written”?
Because every half decent writing pun has already been taken! “Write On”, “The Write Stuff”, “Write on Time”, “Write of Way”, “Two Wrongs Don’t Make a Write”, “Write Away”, “Write About Now”, “Write Club”… Google them! The only new one that I could come up with was “The Extreme Write” and that really didn’t seem like the best of ideas, all things considered.
“Little Written” sounds a bit like “Little Britain”, which is a street in the City of London and one-time popular television series*. Also, it has a comfortingly self-deprecating air about it in that it suggests that you haven’t done much work. And it scans well. There is really nothing more to it than that. Sorry.
What about the opening and closing theme?
The theme “music” is made up of public domain recordings of frogs and crickets from SoundBible, and the title is read by Dr Hannah Fry, whose participation was secured almost entirely (but not entirely) without the need for blackmail. So thanks for that.
* Though I was never particularly fond of the series, personally.
