I should clarify that comment, I don’t have writers block, far from it I have knocked out blogs for the next couple days, put another 2.5 K words on my second book, did a decent edit on the first book based on some feed back.
but all that aside, the ONE thing I needed to do tonight, was to write a blurb for my first book, a tagline and a summary. How hard can those things be, I know the blurb is a MAX of 400 words, and best done under 250. the Tag line is even easier – a single sentence maybe 2. As for the summary, how hard can it be to put 90K word book into a couple of paragraphs.
Turns out hard enough that I would rather write blog entry’s for the next couple days, but 2.5K on my second book and re-re-re-re-re-re-edit my first book.
I am torn if this indicates that I’m not a good a writer as I think I am, after all I can’t even do a simple few sentences or paragraphs. Or if I should accept that I am long-winded, or at least over passionate about my stores and can’t just to a 5 second burst.
my two tag lines I have are:
After a night Celebrating Jamie, A deaf college girl, discovers a new world full of witches and Demons. Can she keep herself and her family safe as she tries to remove the demon that is possessing her?
Jamie was a typical deaf freshmen girl until the night that a fateful encounter with a demon turned her world upside down. Can Jamie and her friends & family survive this new evils attention?
my 2 fans are torn each liked a different one then the other. and hated the one they didn’t choose.
is this why writers drink ?
