  2. Great compendium, Debby! The link on blurbs/loglines is particularly useful; writers struggle with boiling their story down to its elementals. I’ve had a lot of practice doing that in Hollywood — you have to know how to go into an exec’s office and pitch a project — but novelists, I’ve noticed, wrestle with this skill.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Sean. And yes, I’m with you on how many of us (including myself,) struggle with condensing, lol. That’s why I found that article most helpful and wanted to share for others. So, thank you for sharing a link to your own experiencing. I will be over to check it out and hopefully some others may too. I know you’ve had plenty experience Sean, so I appreciate you sharing. 🙂
